Door hinge Repair

I've been trying different ways of documenting the eMack's modifications. I'm leaning towards Flickr.  Here's a link: https://www.flickr.com/photos/emack/albums

Seems it would be easier to make the holes slightly oversize, then turn some new pins to fit.

That's an option. Slightly larger with 9mm pin would work - but now you're mixing inch & metric which can be annoying. Going larger for 3/8" pin... now you weakening the hinge. Everything's a compromise.

Two of the hinges were too far gone for the quick-and-dirty "One-Shot" knurling & reaming. I ended up drilling and reaming all of them for metric pins.
