Sewing machine table hinge upgrade

When I adapted a sewing machine table for a customer to fit her machine I noticed it had hinges with barrels that stuck up off the table.

These might be a problem when moving cloth across the table under the machine.  I didn't have an answer at the time, but later I came across a sewing machine or card table hinge that would do the job.
