Comments about DW SM1207 Delta Ball Bearing Hinge:
Due to cheap materials that DW used to manufacture this hinge, it tends to break under normal use. Once the hinge breaks, if you don't notice that it's broken right away, it leads to other serious problems. The chain will not stay on the sprocket, which will wear down the sprocket quickly, and could also damage the chain. It's a functional hinge, but if you're like me and your feet don't travel in at a perfect 90 degree angle to the ground, the sideways motion will wear this hinge down to the breaking point. My hinge lasted me about 4 years, which is pretty good, but if the hinge were made of hardened steel rather than cheap white-metal, it would've lasted forever.
