Research the screw size, we already know the thread type. Buy the micro tap that is made for watches and clocks or things of that sort. Slowly start from the top hinge hole, work your way down to the bottom one and slowly retap the hole. Also, I feel like I just opened a whole new can of worms for the rest of the memo unleash the comments. Brace yourself.Could you explain what a 4-5 tap is? I get the concept of a tap wrench, but I have no idea how I would do that correctly
YouTube taught me as well. My dumb ass stripped a screw on an AR pistol grip. Wasn't gonna pay someone to do it so, bought the tools cheap and did it myself, in no time. Instead of spending an arm and a leg and waiting on a gunsmith for days.Watch a YouTube video or two on tapping first. You shouldn't tap in one motion. I would suggest a drop of cutting fluid and backing the tap out a bit after maybe an 1/8th of a turn. This will clear the cuttings and ensure a clean tap.
I know what you mean.I don't have the patience or steady enough hands for it.
