Andy is correct....they have not been made the latches in years. I need 5... if you find a source for $30.00 each. I may but a lathe and make my own and retire...@ $20,000.00 each.

Take the componets to a machine shop....I'm guessing $50.00 each.

Thanks for the tip on VTS. I must have got the old clips because they are way too thick for the corning windows. Pinching one together I found it changes the alignment for the catch that pulls it closed and does not pull real tight. Now I own 8 clips that obviously needed to be redesigned.

If you win the bid let me know I need at least one screw barrel.
Thanks.

I saw something at the hardware store that got me thinking.... Danger, danger. There are shut off valves for sink faucets that may come fairly close to the brass screw in the latch crank. When I get back from a week of fishing I will post findings.

What you see, is not always what you see.

The brass screw and barrel nut, have what is called a "double start" thread.

That complicates the matter.

I paid, from a friend, $110.00, for one tap.
