Topic tags/keywords: chair hinge

I am would like to build a folding chair based on one that I bought used, but I am having a hard time finding the type of hinge that was used. Not even sure what to call it, a pivot hinge with bushing perhaps? Any help with the proper name or source would be appreciated.

It seems to off set the seat and back so they nest together better but I’m not sure that a pin wouldn’t work also.

That’s half of a knife hinge. They’re pretty easy to find.
