Bland: Res in cardine est.

· Cardo · Hinge ·
Res in cardine est.

(The business is at a turning point.)
The business is on the hinge.

Bland's Commentary:
The business is on the hinge; it is in that state that it must now, one way or the other, be soon terminated, alluding to a door, which, hanging on its hinges, may be shut or opened by a very slight impulse. We also say the business hinges (turns) on such a circumstance; if that be made out, it will end successfully, if not it will fail.
You can read more commentary by Bland online, and here is more about Bland's book.
