    Default Free Bone Escutcheon

    Our good forum friend, Burkhard Rasch, offered to send me a bone escutcheon to replace a missing one on a recently acquired clock that came without one, as seen here: http://mb.nawcc.org/showthread.php?1...-Jerome-Darrow.

    Unfortunately for me, the escutcheon was too wide and if I narrow it up, I will probably cut into the keyhole. Fortunately for you, if you would like/need it, I will pay Burkhard's kindness forward and send it to you. Here is a picture. The escutcheon is 2" tall by 1-1/16" wide by 3/32" thick (50.8 x 26.99 x 2.38 mm). The keyhole is 5/8" tall (15.87 mm).

    If you would like it, reply or PM me.

    Hi Tom,
    Generally when I replace a missing escutcheon(bone or Ivory) I first fit the diamond to the existing recess. Once that is done then I slowly and carefully establish the keyhole. Reason being that the pin in the lock sometimes is not centered.
    If you need a piece of bone let me know,I have some piano keys that are just about the correct thickness.

    Thanks Tom. That sounds like good advice. In this case, the diamond and keyhole were precut when Burkhard sent it to me. I'm not complaining, it was a generous offer.

    Piano keys? Hmm? Hadn't thought about using one of those. I am away on travel, so I don't know the size of my diamond, but it is smaller than the dimensions I listed above for this escutchion. I'll PM you my info, but it may be a few days based on my travel schedule.

    Tom

    If you need something thicker, look for "Bone folders" on the auction sites.
