The screen door on my TT has had a rough-looking patch on the lower hinge since ever I've had it. Beyond just looking bad, it prevents the outer door from closing properly; you have to give it a tremendous slam, and sometimes more than one.
here's the good hinge:
And here's the bad one:
Here's the good hinge again, see how tightly it fits to the door frame:
And again, the "repaired" one:

From these photos, you can see that the way that the PO dealt with this problem was to put strips of AL over the breaks and rivet them on. This seems to be the root of the door closing problem: the strips add to the thickness of the screen door and prevent the hinge from getting tight to the frame and door, with the result that I mentioned above. Also, the hinge is somewhat distorted, I think. It's my belief that some tragic accident did all this damage at one time.
I need to get this fixed, and my first reaction was to find a new door to replace the old one with, but I don't think that this is going to be easy.
Then I looked up how to remove the door, and it will come off the hinge by merely drilling out the rivets. By the way, is a # 30 drill a 1/8"?
I'm thinking that I could get a skilled welder to repair the door by simply welding the cracks in it and thereby get rid of the patches and then be able to close the door easily.
