Banging Pipes

In bathroom sink, single head faucet, my pipes bang as soon as the faucet head is angled to the hot side. When angled all the way to the hot side the water spurts, is very slow and banging is very loud. No problems with tub or shower or kitchen sink. Problem does not appear to be pipes just vibrating together. I have no water heater. Hot water is from oil furnace/radiators. My best guess is a blockage in the pipe, not faucet. Any other ideas and suggestions greatly appreciated.

kjb197, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
Since it is only one faucet that is involved, I would guess that the cartridge in the faucet is bad or has some bad parts. You will have to turn off the water supplies (both hot and cold) under the sink and remove the cartridge and examine it.
Before you do that, you could turn off the hot supply and disconnect the supply tube at the valve and hold a rag over the opening and turn it on and off a couple times to see if there is any junk in the line. Good luck.
