Yes, the bane of x-metals and their dreaded hinges now may have a possible route to resurrection. I've spoken with a few manufacturers and due to the non-standard design of these OEM hinges, only 1 shop came back with a possible solution. It'd be either a non-flex metal hinge or a flexible non-metal non-spring hinge. What does the community think? If there's sufficient interest in these then I can find out about the finer details and get some prototypes going.
