  • Cleaning and Repairing an Antique Mortise Door Lock

    Would you have a similar lock in the house? Carefully removed and used as an example, it might serve.I would recommend just trying different assemblies, keeping track of how you put any particular part together...dead bolt assembly, for example.I had recently tried a piece of steel from a clock spring (wound type) as a replacement for the flat springs in a few locks. While not stiff enough by itself, a couple/three together might serve.I'm the type that needs a bunch of pieces in front of me to work, so sending me pics would probably not help.Sorry.
