Thread: 031 A brass hardware

    031 A brass hardware

    Dimensions 18 w x 11 1/4 x 8 1/2 quarter sawn dovetail cylinder lock with all brass hardware. I've looked thru forum and dated 1911-1914. I question the brass hardware was brass used or was hardware plated nickel buffed down to brass. If I can figure out how to post pics will add.

    I have never seen brass hardware plated with nickel. Gerstner used steel hardware plated with nickel or solid brass hardware, that I know of.

    I have not seen brass used on an O31A, but it may have been an option.

    Check yours with a magnet; if they are steel or brass-plated they will be attracted to the magnet, if brass, they will not.
