Fix Old Doorknob

Fix Old Doorknob Podcast:

Tim Carter helps Sharon and her husband fix their front doorknob in their 1890s house in Chicago. Mr. Sharon FIXED it while the podcast was happening. How cool was that? This was a featured article in the April 30, 2020 Newsletter.

The key to the repair is recognizing how the parts of the doorknob work. If you've never taken apart or installed a modern replica knob that requires a spindle, you'd not immediately realize how simple this repair really is. It was SO EXCITING to have the repair happen while I was on the call.

Here's what the doorknob looked like BEFORE Tim called Sharon:
