I am now favouring the drilling and nail solution
The diagram shows a screw, not a nail, which makes more sense as it makes it easier to remove.

I'd make or buy a jig.

Re: Advice for broken door hinge?

I have a carpenter coming up in a couple of weeks. We'll see how he fixes it, and I'll update.

Re: Advice for broken door hinge?

I managed to delete my last, longer answer so here comes the short version.

If you or the carpenter decide to glue the piece (with/without the drilling part) here is the FixAll product that Hornbach sells. I did not see the Sika product I have although they have other products from Sika.

It handles 320kg/10cm2. In my store it is found in the construction area.

Just to update, this was what the carpenter did. drilled a hole and put in a screw into the side. Took 5 minutes. All good. We'll see how the bill looks!

Although I could have drilled the hole myself, the chance of me, not being great at DIY, of buggering it up, was too high - the hole had to be really quite accurately drilled - so I'm happy that the carpenter came over.

Thanks all for the advice

Re: Advice for broken door hinge?

Sorry to come in late with a really stupid suggestion, but have you tried sticking a wood toothpick, or two, in the hole and screwing the hinge back in?

That is my solution for loose screws in wood. Works a treat.

The hinge is not the screw-in type, rather it is retained with a screw which was missing.

Re: Advice for broken door hinge?

Here you go, solved your problem !!


THE DOOR HINGE
Charlie was installing a new door ...and found that one of the hinges was missing. He asked his wife Mary if she would go
to B&Q (large DIY store) and pick up a hinge.

Mary agreed to go.

While she was waiting for the manager to finish serving a customer,her eye caught a beautiful bathroom tap.

When the manager was finished, Mary asked him, "How much is that bath tap?"
The manager replied, "That's a gold plated bath tap and the price is £450.00.
Mary exclaimed, "My goodness, that is a very expensive tap. It's certainly out of my price bracket."

She then proceeded to describe the hinge that Charlie had sent her to buy. The manager said that he had them in stock and went into the storeroom to get one.
From the storeroom the manager yelled,
"Madam, do you want a screw for the hinge?"

Mary paused for a moment and then shouted back,
"No, but I will for the bath tap.

This is why you can't send women to B&Q!
