Firstly, I've make a big mistake during the setting of the hinge: I had screwed a maximum the screw whereas it needed to be unscrew to tight the hinge ... So I have unscrew it, and now the frame is relatively rigid, even if the play feels always and it seems the screw or the nut which tight the frame is half dead.
A little picture of the axis (red line) I wanted to change, quite clear it had a little problem..:

strangely the clamp made in sheet metal seems to haven't suffer so much.

I though well to take a screw with a major part of plain, like that:

I don't see why it would be less strong than the original, even in shearing.
