Brass Lock Refurbishment.


Recommended Posts

Brilliant has a nice old brass door lock but it doesn't work.

Rather than replacing it I thought at least an attempt to restore it might be a good plan.

A neighbour has a locksmith son in law so a key should be possible. There are YouTube clips of boiling locks in bicarbonate of soda to clean them, sounds a bit drastic, any ideas?

Hi Polly, 

I would take it to the locksmiths to have a key cut and have it repaired, I am sure the locksmiths we went to for having keys cut for Ranworth Breeze were very good, here is  a link to their website, if I remember they were near to Boats & Outboards.
