Well, I found one! It is a perfect fit. No filing or grinding. OK, so it cost 10X what I paid for the first one, but it is complete. At 10 times the cost it is STILL a bargain considering that you only find something like this once in 5 years! It arrived intact also! So, the old one that was just a little too big will be put up on Ebay in the next week or so.

What am I on about?
This of course!

Here was the old one I found in December

Then there was the batch of twelve 1860s sash locks I got. I only needed five of them so I guess some of them will wind up on Ebay also!. Here is one of them

Then there were the six 3-way dimmer switches for $30 including shipping. All of which have been installed already.

This has all been too good to be true. Something bad will happen. I'll bet when I turn my water on next month there is a leak due to a burst pipe! Probably behind the shower.....

I would hold onto the extra sash locks - its always a good idea to have a few spares around...

Looks good! You gotta love that warm fuzzy feeling when you get such a great deal.

Spectacular! And it arrived in one piece. What more could you ask for.
