Fixings for an Antique Brass Door Knob

Postby norris53 » Thu Jun 19, 2014 3:06 pm

I have bought a single antique brass door knob from a junk shop, which I would like to use. However, although it will take a standard square section spindle there is no way to attach it to the spindle. Instead it has a screw thread on the outside of the shank, obviously intended to fit into a rose, and I need to find a rose which will take this. There is no other way to attach the knob to the spindle, no hole for a grub screw or similar. I am familiar with knobs which have a screw thread on the inside of the shank and go onto a threaded spindle, but I have never seen one like this before. Does anyone know where such a thing could be obtained? Alternatively I suppose I could drill a hole for a grub screw, but I'm reluctant to risk spoiling it.

Hi, your local trading estate will no doubt have an engineers workshop of some lkind on it, they all do! These guys are usually very helpful, have all the right kit and getting to know them is a really usefull excersise. On top of that the job you get will probably be a lot more professional and long lasting than doing it yourself and, in most cases, is nowhere near as costly as one might think. PLease do let us know how you get on s it might help others in your area.
