We would like to replace existing self-closing 3/8" inset hinges on our kitchen cabinets. They are around 25 years old. All of the hinges we have tried fit in the old holes, but shift the door a bit so that it no longer closes. Really don't want to have to fill the existing holes & drill new ones. Is this a common problem when trying to replace old hinges? Any options?

Yes, this is a fairly common problem. It's difficult to try and replace old cabinet hinges with the exact same type. I know I tried to find my own kitchen cabinet hinges with no success. Mine weren't the self closing type, either, so what I did was use our 32-304 magnetic catch to keep doors closed. Could that solution work for you, as well?
