Updates to Chapter 15, "And Also Starring",
in Hinged Dissections: Swinging & Twisting, by Greg N. Frederickson

Another dissection found by Ernest Freese

In Ernest Freese's manuscript, Geometric Transformations (completed before his death in 1957), which I got access to in February 2003, there is a diagram of the same 5-piece dissection of a hexagram to a triangle as in Figure 15.14. (However, there is no indication that the dissection is hingeable.)

Second hexagram to triangle is wobbly-hinged

I neglected to note on page 144 that the dissection of a hexagram to a triangle in Figure 15.14 is wobbly-hinged. Do you see why?
Of the five different hingings possible, three are wobbly-hinged. Can you spot the two that aren't?
