Post by Peter Butler » Wed Feb 19, 2020 9:57 pm

Can anyone please offer suggestions as to where I might be a able to buy cast brass carriage door handles as the ones in the picture below...

I've had these for so long I can't remember where I got them from.
Also, a supplier of brass handrail knobs would be most welcome too.

I had some of these from Brandbright I believe.

I will check my bits box tomorrow as I might still have some.

Can't help with actual suppliers Peter, but for brass handrail knobs I usually crimp short lengths of D-section brass wire around a piece the handrail wire.

That looks to me like the cast brass handles that Swiftsixteen supply.
No connection just a satisfied customer.

As Phil says, Swift Sixteen could be the source

Sorry Peter, I forgot to check in the week but I had a look just now and I do have some from Brandbright (brand new):

The packet says they are 'RSA5 Brass Door Handles T pattern'.
