Sal­vaged Hard­ware

Old House Journal - - Know-How -

Some­times es­sen­tial pieces of the tran­som op­er­at­ing mech­a­nism are miss­ing. Sev­eral com­pa­nies sell re­pro­duc­tions as kits, but if you are buy­ing a sal­vaged tran­som, make sure all the parts are there. Miss­ing lift hard­ware is some­times avail­able through sal­vage deal­ers and on­line ven­dors such as eBay. San­tan­to­nio be­lieves that old tran­som lift hard­ware is among the rarest items to sur­vive in to­day’s old homes, as parts are fairly del­i­cate, and many orig­i­nal lifts were dam­aged and re­moved over the years.
