Thanks guys,

Managed to back the good screws out and remove the hinge leaves. As the screws were brass, used a narrow chisel and mortised them out and plugged the holes. The broken drill bit I managed to squish out of the way with a nail set and plugged it as well. Poopiekat, I’ll definitely be buying a properly sized Vix bit tomorrow. Bottoms of the hinge mortises are a mess, but they’ll be covered in the end.

All in all it looks like the fixes will be invisible. I’ll post pics when the project’s done and see if anyone can guess which hinges were the nasty ones. :p

Thanks for the help everyone.
