I'd try to rescue the Dera. Rust penetrating lube on the hinges and work em back and forth slowly. Maybe heating them up. The clone I gave my dad had the same rust probs with the hinges. It just took a couple days of adding oil to em and working em loose. One hinge even broke at the weld so that had to be welded back together.
