Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and tips. I guess I’ll plug up those holes and try again. I’m going to take some careful measurements and see if my mortises are off. I did them by hand, but I used a good marking gauge to set up all the lines and my 3/4” chisel is exactly the width of the hinge. My suspicion is that the hole placement is my downfall. They are tiny screws and my 1/16” bit was hard to keep still, even in my drill press. I’ll use the tips here to make a plan and let you know how I do.
