Man did I need you the other week.

I did a sample for a client and had to take the locking mechanism apart.

It was a complicated lock and luckily for me the sample had to look good, not actually work.

I've got some spare bits if you want them

Cody, you big suck-up! Living in the big house now, huh?


Only as long as Jane doesn't dust under her bed

*cough cough*

Judging by what I can see, I'm safe for a while

Well, we have a huge box of mixed parts for all sorts of locks. I have had hours of fun sorting them all, to find the next day that my colleague has re-mixed them, in search of some random bit of kit. He's about as organised as a tornado full of active grenades! I would keep em if I were you. You never know when a part might come in really handy!

The guys that work with me are chalk and cheese

Campy and Lovie in life, Lovie is a a major conspiracy theorist and David Icke is his god, we have some strange conversations. He as pedantic as it is possible to be, and an amazing furniture maker, Campy is just a blur, all tools everywhere and mess.

You could film a soap opera about it

After market cabinet locks are so readily available, and I am sure that if you are used to restoring, or up cycling old furniture, that you could fit one with your eyes shut. When you have a key but no lock, measure the gap that is left by the absent lock.

Nip down to your local locksmiths, and give them the measurements, or take a few photographs in to them. A decent smith will be able to figure out which size you need. You will end up with a new key as well as a new lock, but they are neither complicated, nor expensive, although obviously, the rarer the furniture, the higher the chance of its having uniquely designed locks, but that would be VERY rare.

Since locks for furniture are so damned cheap, compared with locks for perimeter security, or vehicles for instance, it is usually worth while to just replace the lock in either situation. It gets the whole business resolved quickest, and is the cheapest way of doing things. Getting a locksmith to make a key for an old lock, without a key to work from, can be very costly indeed, since many smiths will charge for what they call "bench time". The reason it is so called, is that it is time at the workbench, and a smiths time is often seen as money, pure and simple.

I like doing that kind of work, but my mother will not allow me to under value my work, which means that it comes with a cost which many would refuse to pay, given the cheaper, and quicker options I have already outlined.

Heh! That's awesome!

A story eh? Once upon a time, in a land of great beauty and natural splendour, there lived a mighty dragon. It used to eat politicians, so no one was ever sacrificed to it, because that is the sort of hugging that only politicians would do, and eventually people stopped desiring power over one another, first out of fear of winged death, breathing fire, but later because the very idea died with the last of the politicians. And therein did all the troubles in the land end, completely.

Everyone had scones and tea, and candy floss for desert, every night, for ever.

Well it's my birthday on the twentieth next month. I will be out doing what I do during the evening that day however, although I fully intend to poke my head in to ATS at some point during the day. I pretty much always do!
