  • The whole process was fascinating, and painstakingly precise. But the making of a key blew me away! Here I was thinking "so what - you can't use this lock" but this craftsman proved me wrong.

    I don't know how this video got into my feed, but I was fascinated watching. Your patience, knowledge, & skill are impressive! How long did it take?

    No way!! That lock is from my family’s business going way back. Corbin Lock and screw out of New Britain, Connecticut. My Grandfather and Great uncle owned the business back in the 20’s I believe. Honored that you’re bringing it back to life. Thanks πŸ‘πŸΌ I believe the Corbin car (1907) was prior to Corbin lock and screw

    A lovely job & as my late dad used to say, if someone bothered making it, it's worth bothering to restore it.
    Mind you, It'll probably only be good for about another 120 years!
    Joking aside, there's no better feeling in the world than bringing a once useful but item back to life, well done.

    The craftsmanship is superb of course (imagine if the original makers of this lock could have watched this video, how touched they might be that someone cared enough to restore it) but I also give full marks for the video edit. The pacing was spot on throughout. Excellent!
  • taytase
    The key-making was pretty mind blowing. Awesome job!
  • David Anderson
    Crikey! This guy has a tool for EVERYTHING! I had absolutely no idea some of those devices existed. What a fascinating and thoroughly entertaining 18 minutes.
  • Michael Hopkins
    Should not have enjoyed something like this as much as I did, but the pacing and commitment to the restoration made it rather mesmerizing. Beautiful result and thank you for sharing.
  • This was so interesting and soothing to watch. It also makes you appreciate the art and skill that went into producing these locks when they were initially manufactured.

    Looking at it before starting,
    you wouldn't think there
    was any chance of restoring !
    But as he said, good job it
    wasn't ferrous !
    1905, did he say ?
    Huge amount of work,
    but how nice to see it
    like new again .😊
    Well done indeed ! 😊
    Who'd think an old lock
    could be uplifting
    like this ! 😊.
    It deserves a picture frame
    as a piece of history !
