    No way!! That lock is from my family’s business going way back. Corbin Lock and screw out of New Britain, Connecticut. My Grandfather and Great uncle owned the business back in the 20’s I believe. Honored that you’re bringing it back to life. Thanks 👍🏼 I believe the Corbin car (1907) was prior to Corbin lock and screw

    The whole process was fascinating, and painstakingly precise. But the making of a key blew me away! Here I was thinking "so what - you can't use this lock" but this craftsman proved me wrong.

    A lovely job & as my late dad used to say, if someone bothered making it, it's worth bothering to restore it.
    Mind you, It'll probably only be good for about another 120 years!
    Joking aside, there's no better feeling in the world than bringing a once useful but item back to life, well done.

    The lever springs are unlikely to be made from copper as the metal is too soft to store much energy. Copper is used in electronics for springs that are not under a lot of tension but the ones in the lock are more likely to be made from brass or phosphor-bronze.

    • John Philippatos
      John Philippatos หลายเดือนก่อน +3

      Yeah, brass most likely.

      Off topic, but minesweeper anchors and chains were/are made from phosphor bronze as they are less likely to set off mines.

      berylium copper makes a good spring but I would guess it is too modern an alloy for the original

    Looking at it before starting,
    you wouldn't think there
    was any chance of restoring !
    But as he said, good job it
    wasn't ferrous !
    1905, did he say ?
    Huge amount of work,
    but how nice to see it
    like new again .😊
    Well done indeed ! 😊
    Who'd think an old lock
    could be uplifting
    like this ! 😊.
    It deserves a picture frame
    as a piece of history !

    Do you do a lot of these restorations? You might want to consider getting a desktop fiber laser. It is great for taking off rust on smaller projects. No chemicals, wire brushes or sandblasting. 😎 Awsome work never the less

    I love Corbin locks and that one is beautiful, now it's looking perfect. Really nice job with the restoration, on a side note if you ever have one's that you need to make keys for that are locked just get some modeling clay, cover the tip of the key with it about 1/8th thick, cover with baby powder and you have your impression to file. Nice work!

    I've watched a few of your refurbishing of old shell type locks now. I would love to see you do that to a Master solid body type lock. That would be most interesting to see how you disassemble one of them and make it work with a new key as well. I always wondered how they were assembled... Thumbs Up!

    I have begun many such projects by first immersing in kerosene to soften all rust inside and out. If the item is too large, I wrap it in burlap then saturate it to soak for several days, sometimes months. Most bolts and screws are then easily removed along with surface rust.

    Your skills, determination and equipment are incredible. However, I was very disappointed that the casing is now a glossy black. I was expecting a lock that displayed the character of an old lock, not a new one or reproduction. The charm and character showing the life this lock has lived are completely gone. 😪😪😪

    Fascinating stuff. My husband's a mechanic and he is meticulous about working on muscle cars, but I simply can't get him interested in this stuff. I always hoped help me rebuild my 1951 Buick's engine with me, but he simply didn't care. If it's not a 1965 Corvette or a GM muscle car, he doesn't want to see it.
    Very cool. Like Techmoan, about working on old stereos, compact radios, etc., it's simply compelling as hell. Probably why YT recommended it to me!

      Given the dreck that passes for music in 90% + of videos, I would agree with you, except that, unfortunately, the sound of rasps, files, etc, and, most of all - sandpaper or glass paper on corroded metal are, to me, a borderline form of torture, right in there with nails down a blackboard! Even the _sensation_ - No, even _thinking_ about the sensation - literally makes me wince! (I can't be the only one, though, surely?!)
      In the unlikely event you ever see me involved in a 'project', I'll be the one saying, "No, trust me, it'll look _waaay_ better with the 'natural' finish..!"
