Window Friction Hinge

The sash is attached to blue conrod of a slider crank mechanism. Push/pull the sash to open/close the window.
Red slider has friction shoes (not shown) that are pressed towards violet runway thus holds the sash at a desired position against undesired movement by wind or the like.
An advantage of this hinge: the outside of the sash is accessible from the inside for purposes of cleaning.
