Asbestos shingles
2 Replies

The house next door to us has asbestos shingles over its original clapboards.  It is not a fancy or beautiful house...just an 1870s vernacular workman's cottage.  The fact that they are asbestos…Continue

I saw on a post that you are a locksmith (and see it again now on your page)... Do you make/copy old skeleton keys or know where I can have that done?  I see that the store you have a link to has antique lock hardware, but I've not had luck with anywhere else that carries antique locks & keys.  The key to the exterior door of my house is a skeleton key and different from all the others in the house (and, according to every locksmith I've tried, my entire area of the state).  I haven't found anyone who had a blank to make another and I really should have more than one key to my house!  I don't want to remove the original lock as it would ruin the door... Just curious if you have any suggestions.  Here is a link to my album with pictures of the key (in case you can tell just by looking at it why it's different than normal, making it so hard to get another):


Thanks for any ideas you may have or tips for finding someone to make a key for me!!
