Question

Mortise lock handle & deadbolt replacement


We have an exterior door that has an old mortise lock (unable to tell brand). Is it possible to keep the mortise and replace the handles and deadbolt only?

Not going to be cheap but in most cases can be done.
Sure would help if you would post a picture.

Google "restoration hardware"

Yes, the replacement for that is simply a knob and axles that go through the old mortise lock-set. The lock is the sticky one for depth and threading.

Do you have a habitat for humanity store that has old things like this that contractors like me drop off after a renovation

You can also get parts on line..

I'll post a picture tomorrow. I was hoping that I could do this for less rather than more since this is just a back door. Doesn't sound like that's going to be an option!

I've got boxes full of the old mortise locks and knobs---they are commonly found in junk shops--flea markets and such--look on Ebay---
