Come on lets see you hinges. Weve had the Lunge Thread and the Stuntfell thread, now heres a thread for the best (or worst) hinges.
Post a picture and we can all give it marks out of ten. If it needs an explenation, then give it one as it may affect your score.
Even the bad ones can get rated, so dont feel shy about posting:lol: Mr Blair.
Ill go first.
70ft ash, in dense woodland, very straight pole, normal felling cut using only wind advantage, no wedges or felling bar.
easy one to begin with.
Please rate my hinge.

What's on your bench today?
Thought I would start a new thread as per the title and start it off with the below: -
A 254XP, lean seized - I have cleaned the cylinder of aluminium transfer, lightly abraded the cylinder with wet and dry, fitted a new piston and pressure checked it...all OK. Unusual as it had seized on inlet and outlet piston sides.
Compression measures 145psi but expect this to go up once fueled and run - the cylinder has some light scores but will run and have decent power once done.
