TIP: When I am stuck using special brass hardware screws, I always drive a same size waxed steel screw into the hole first, then remove it; and install the brass screw.

Best Luck.

This bears repeating because it will allow you to use brass for it s look, even if it is a soft metal, easily marred or broken.

ECHO, ECHo, ECho, Echo, echo!... personally brass screws are for looks. The will hold hinges and plates for lightweight duty… if you want grunt… brass plate (as opposed to China) is the way to go.
