Wood Locks

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Never made wood locks. Looks interesting. Use to make all kinds of wooden toys. Made several decorative (mantel type) wooden trains and animated pull toys.

Been thinking about making wood toys for my, under 4 years old, 4 great grand children. My current hold up is finding a local source for a few wood wheels. I don't need a 100 wheels of different diameters.
I have an excuse. CRS.

This is not the type lock that SONNY was talking about, but this is a crude lock from my G'Grandfather's smokehouse, who was in the Civil War. When the key is removed the tumblers drop down into a slot in the latch bolt. I have some more pics but Photobucket is acting weird today.

Here is a pic of the wood chains, with hooks that I made.

I think the locks will go good with these, as they are the same size shackles and links. thanks; sonny

I use a router and some complicated holding jigs to do the chains and hooks.--To finish sizing the links I hand scrape some and the last one I made I used the Moto-tool to help size the links!--goes a bit faster!
The locks are made one piece at a time then glued together after proper fit is reached.
I have a couple locks roughed out and mostly assembled . They now need a lot of hand sanding and a bit more scraping to get the right fit! thanks; sonny
