How do I make antique door knobs/handles work

kntryhumanDecember 17, 2009

I want to purchase antique glass door knobs/handles and put them in new doors. The glass door knobs sold on eBay are the knobs and spindle but nothing else.

What do I need to make them work in a new door besides a back plate and where do I buy the parts?

You need these kits, they're great (look at seller's store for lots more options):
