Default hinges on solid core door?

On Sat, 12 Apr 2008 03:26:11 -0500, Elias D

I've got a heavy solid-core door with hinge problems. The original
screws have loosened up and stripped out. Several of these were
replaced by what appears to be 3 inch decking screws. Now it appears
that even these decking screws have loosened up and lost traction.

What's the best way to restore solid hinge attachment to the door
frame? These doors are very heavy......

Drill the stripped hole; behind the hinge, a little bit larger. Use a
wood/? glue and,then insert a wooden dowel. Allow to set. Trim flush
and re-drill (pilots) for the hinge screws.
