Wanted: old locks with or without keys

Post by evan price » Mon May 01, 2017 8:25 pm

Looking for old locks. Padlocks, door locks, deadbolts, cylinders, mortise units, etc.
With keys is nice but not required.
No combination locks. I don't need the non locking parts ie no strikers or thumb turns or latches. Just the part the key goes in.
Quantity is good.
Old is good.
Let me know what you have.
These won't be used for actual security purposes. They will be used for teaching.
Not looking for retail. I'll pay junk price.
Thanks!

If you aren't part of the solution, then you obviously weren't properly dissolved.

i would think some knowledge of locks would be needed to make the picks work. Not all locks are transparent :(
