Default Hinges and pins for Pfaff 130-6

Hello, I have a vingage Pfaff 130-6 with a plastic case. I would like to make a wooden case for it, well the base part of a case anyway. I will need hinges and pins that would fit. Are most hinges from vintage machines interchangable? Could I use any older hinge sets, say from a Singer or any other common machine? I have not made the box yet, so besides what would fit best in the Pfaff, I would be quite flexible. I have seen no pics of Pfaff hinges, so I don't know what I should be looking for. Thanks to anyone who has some advice.

Welcome cian.

According to Table/cabinet interchangeability??? generic Singer to Pfaff 360 and Pfaff 130 - My mama's machine It looks like the Pfaff 130 hinge pins are the same as Singer.

I believe that it is the Necchi that has different size holes and pins. There may be others that are different sizes.

I saw https://www.instructables.com/id/How...-Machine-Case/ that has instructions about making the hinge pins. I don't remember it saying anything about the different sizes, but I know there are different size hinge pins.

I have a plastic case from the 1970s that the hinge pins seemed smaller so it would fit more machines.

Does your machine have the hinges already on the machine? If not, just make a box to fit, put small wedges in each corner for the machine to rest on, then put drawer handles on the outside to help PU the box. A friend made mine out of pine and I painted it black to match the machine I have.
