  • No more lock troubles thanks to forum family!

    I took all my new found lock knowledge out to the shop with me tonight and was able to produce this:


    It does work!! I just kept working with the springs until I had one that fit good and held the shackle firmly. I should have taken a picture of the inside, but was so excited I got it that I put it together. Of course I don't have the finish on it yet and it's just "pinned" together for now. Just excited to show you that I did it.... thanks to all of you!!! This place is the greatest!! Thanks so much!!!
