Another exterior door refinishing problem. We sanded the hell out of the door, and it looks pretty nice. Someone had retrofitted brass kickplated on the door, and used glue, and that was quite a task to get rid of.
Now we have remove the lock handset. The original is a Schlage. It needs to be replaced. It most closely resembles the Schlage Venice, and Baldwin Landon series. However, some of the measurements are off. The really big problem is that the templates for installing each of these has you drilling two holes in the door to install the lock. When we removed the Schlage a huge single somewhat keyhole shaped cut out is present. I don’t know if the two locks we found can be adapted to this. Any guesses? Anywhere to find old (this is only 12 years old) locks on the net?
