I installed hinges for the first time on my last project – beautiful extruded hinges and of course the screws were utter crap. I’d been forwarned of that, though, and took precautions:

1. drill the holes correctly
2. wax the threads
3. hand drive them slowly

and they worked totally fine – didn’t even need to pretap. your screws might be worse than mine, but i doubt it!

anyway, plenty of advice here on how to get the problems out… just take it really easy on those screws :-)
