front bay window, broken hinges

A home owner from abingdon, md says:
Just purchased a home that has a front bay window. Center is 36" wide; two side crank open windows are 55L x 19-1/2" wide. They crank open and both windows have broken hinges on the top. The window is in good condition except for the hinges which need replacement. There are no markings on the windows anywhere, house is approx 20 years old and was told that this is the original window. HELP>>>>PLEASE at a loss...

Good Afternoon,

Could you upload a few photos of the hinges with measurements? This will help use research a possible replacement hinge.

I can't really get a good look at your hinge. You could have a roto type of hinge which is not used anymore. Take a look at our 36-013-10 2-Bar Hinge Set. This is the type that is most common in today's windows. If you're uncertain about using the 36-013-10 Hinge Set, send more photos so we can take a look.

I will check and see if my friend has better photos of the hinges but it does look like the ones you referenced.
