I am looking for a hinge similar to the ones in the pictures. They are used on sewing machine cabinets and Old Radio Cabinets. They are a unique pivot hinge. I am trying to find a place or person that caries these hinges. Any and All help is greatly appreciated.

Sorry, I don’t have a source and am assuming you have already tried the sewing and old radio lists.
Do you need one or two as replacements or a bunch for some sort of production run?
Obviously purchasing them is likely the most economical alternative.
But if you only need one or two they don’t look like they would be that difficult to make.
Cut the blank out of steel stock, fine tune outline with a file, drill holes, make bend, and rivet (?).
All of this could probably be done with the tools in your shop.
Just a thought…

I think that those are called knife hinges. Try searching for those.
