Step 6: Install the handle

Picture of Install the handle
Installing the handle was easy -- I simply attached it to the brackets on the case and re-fastened them in place.

The materials required for this project were as follows:

- a small section of an old belt
- a small piece of leather scrap
- two rivets
- a small amount of leather dye
- glue

This handle came off of an old phonograph that is over 80 years old.  I fully expect the rebuilt handle to last at least as long.  If you want to know if it works out this way, check with me on my 143rd birthday........
