Re: How to service door locks

Old weiser did not come apart like new ones do.
Indeed, the face did not come of, the bible stayed in the knob.
Malekal is doing it right.
Now to put it back together...

I havé à hollow 1/2 follower, used it to pull on the rod while pushing in in the know, used the key to screw it in. :)

Almost like a delrin Papa so yeah basically plastic. Every time I come across a Weiser they seem to be different guts wise while identical on the exterior. Either the plants up here retooled a lot or they sub-contracted/distributed from a wide supply. Unfortunately the location of manufacture or plant ID# are rarely if ever marked, Hell most don't even have the brand name displayed..

Re: How to service door locks

Seems you mastered that Weiser Mal! Great work. Did you rekey/repin the lock so it's functional and ready to be put back in service or is it a work in progress/practice lock?

Hand made key, fitted to lock, rebuilt, and ready to be installed. Although it probably won't be! Sempai is giving me those to service for the sake of learning :)

Working on the russwin now.

Re: How to service door locks

Doogs there are different models. There is but another that requires a bar at the end of the plug be depressed in order to unlock the door (the tip of the key depresses the bar as it is fully inserted into the plug). That one also has the cylinder permanently in the knob.
