Step 6: 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
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........
