Most house projects involve a little hardware; hinges, locksets, latches, knobs and more. Often it is hard to find the right replacement but luckily one often doesn’t have to. Whether it’s caked with paint, inoperable or loose, the vast majority of hardware can be made beautiful and functional once again with a little bit of work. In this workshop, we’ll look at paint removal and polishing methods as well as lock, latch and doorknob repairs, and adjustment. We will also specifically tackle how to repair worn out screw holes, which help keep different types of hardware attached.
