The subject of this thread prompted me to "show off" what I did a dozen
years ago....I did just that, I replaced about 40 "modern" doorknobs in
our colonial style home with antique cast brass knobs I bought on eBay.
I think they look much sexier than smooth brass knobs, don't you?
Nice job and nice pictures.
I can see people getting mad at you for altering the knobs. There are
purists of all sorts out there. In fact, when I retrofit an old item to
work in the modern world I sometimes feel a little guilty as I'm making the
changes. However, once it's together and looking and working good, the
guilt goes away quickly.
