I have a heavy hardwood kitchen door on a double action hinge. The recess for the top pivot is crumbly and no longer holds it firmly in place. This causes the door to scrape against the door frame.
One screw hole was kind of stripped and I glued in a 1/4" dowel. The area for the other screw barely has any usable wood left. I'm thinking a possible solution is to drill out a bigger area and set in a wood block that would be suitable for solidly holding a longer screw in place. However I have never done anything like this before and I don't want to rush in an ruin a 90 year old door.
I've provided the thumbnail below to an idea of what I'm dealing with. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
