Considering this, what screws to use for door hinges?
Screw the hinge back in with yellow dichromate (zinc-plated) screws—the color and head size of these rust-resistant drywall screws are a good match for standard brass hinge screws.
One may also ask, how do you fill stripped screw holes in wood? Dip the tips of strips into wood glue and tap them lightly into the hole with a hammer until the hole is filled. Let the glue dry for a few hours. Trim off the strips with a sharp knife or chisel if they're sticking out of the hole, and sand the area, if necessary.
In respect to this, why do hinge pins come out?
The reason the hinge pins come out is because the door is shaking.
How do you fix a screw hole that is too big?
Fill the hole with any liquid glue that can be used on wood (like Elmer's). Jam in several wood toothpicks until they're very snug and entirely fill the hole. Allow to dry completely, then snap off toothpick ends so they're flush with surface. Drive your screw through the repaired hole!
