about  Reclaiming a nightlatch.

The before state.

The lock as it came to us in pretty poor condition. The lock was covered in rust and paint. The backplate was very badly corroded to the point of being useless. The sliding brass knob was badly dented and hanging loose on the spindle.
 

The lock after restoration.

Here is the lock after we had finished with it. The lock has been stripped and cleaned. A new backplate has been made, the case refinished and the knob replaced. The brass has been polished and the interior has been rustproofed with our own non-toxic rustproofer. We found a key from our collection that fitted and now the lock is fully working and ready to refit.
