Oh, I know. It’s not my piece. Keys from Amazon were already here when I arrived. And because of the construction of this one, recovering from a back injury, and knowing how we would have to transport it, it just makes me nervous it will break in my hands.
Was pretty upset she had jammed a key in a lock I had already suggested was probably broken.
I’ll have her make an appointment to a locksmith. Thanks.
I can’t seem to find a solution. I have an antique wooden wardrobe or standing dresser that has a fake antique skeleton key lock on the cabinet doors. I want to replace that with a function lock that uses a modern type key and not just a barrel key. Ideally is remains decorative. Any ideas? Thank you!!!
I've got a broken filing cabinet lock I need to remove, but it looks like there is a special tool required (see the "bolt" highlighted in the photo). Any idea what tool is required?
I’m curious if anyone knows of a ole-tyme style lock that can be swapped in place of something like a Prime-Line U 9947? This is more about style than security, so even a cigar-box style lock would work. Everything I’ve found requires mortising or a larger diameter hole and I’m dealing with a relatively small amount of wood/space in the cabinet I’m trying to repair.
