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.
