Both ours are on their 5th year, still look/work like new!

We did go and get some fancy ones when we bought this house... I think the hinges are what save the life of these seats... They are a cusioned hinge... so if you "drop" the toilet seat or lid it slowly settles down, doesnt slam!

Great for those 2am pissers and you don't wanna wake the family and the seat falls out of your hand. They didn't cost that much (maybe $25-35ea) but well worth it... No MDF or shitty wood (pun intended!) they are a composite... got em at like Lowes or Home Depot...

Make some thick brass hinges and a 2" thick hardwood rim. I bet you could do it.

Ours is really very nice, has lasted a long time but i got home earlier and the hinge was snapped in half. It made for an interesting piss having to hold the seat up with one knee .The lid was made of some type of marble or granite looking stuff.

I just realized there was no ass wipe after I did the deed. And the wife was asleep, and there was no more ass wipe in the house, and had to use napkins, from the kitchen, and, well Ill leave it at that.

I was thinking delrin...and possibly making it servo actuated.

I know Kami is semi-retired...but I wonder if he'd do a special order?

Are you sure your dad wasn't hiding a copy of Big Un's in the paper? That might explain why it took him half an hour...

I guess we all start somewhere.

I only caught this while watching the same "Hair of the Dog" video for the 10th time so I guess I'm no better

fawking nooooobs.

Maybe this dude has a warped sense of humor and thought this would be funny? Who the fawk knows anymore. Just for the record, I never worn out a shitter seat. I don't think it's possible. I broken a few with me fat arse snapping off the mounting studs, but I've never 'worn' one out.

Pretty sure it's a female thing. Four in the house here and we go through a couple a year.
