Need to know: is there a modern replacement available, or is this another of Singer's proprietary screw threads? (Single hole, flat disc of hinge is 1-1/8 inch across.)

My 15-91 happens to be missing the screws that attach the hinge to the cabinet. I did a search here for the info, but could not find Farmer John's screw/thread chart.

Lori, are you talking about the wood screw that holds the hinge in the cabinet?  If so then modern wood screws will do the same job, threads really don't matter on them.  Just slide a couple of wood match sticks and Elmer's glue in the existing hole and the new wood screw will tap itself snug.  I've used plain old Home Depot wood screws as replacements.  Just find one with about the same size head and overall depth.

Yes, what David said!  ^^  I use toothpicks instead of matchsticks, but same idea.  I take the hinge with me to the hardware store to get one with a head that fits nicely into the hinge.  Brass looks nice or black if I can't find brass.

Of course! My mom used to use toothpicks to tighten up the hole of wood drawer pulls. Thank you.
