Re: Lock Restoration (Before & After)

This old yale was a REALLY good pick and I took a liking to it. You dont see many of these around oz so thought i'd give it a clean and polish.

Before:

After:

1600 grit sandpaper removed the old surface. It had a copper coating i'd love to have kept but it was pretty badly scratch so just took it right back to the copper. Cleaned out the interior and pins as best i could, polished with brasso and gave the copper face of the lock a new coat of laquer.
