source for door latches

Post by oregon doug » January 1st, 2015, 2:22 pm

I found these door latches-the camming type that really do the job--Fastenal carries them and they are a nationwide seller, so anyone can find a Fastenal in a good sized city.
These are industrial quality and will give you years of service. You can also find handy-
hold clamps that will make life in the shop easier when you need the extra hands for help.

they have some great deals on closeout online as well

You can get the same exact ones at the Toggle Clap Store for 75% less. I've been using them for years and wouldn't consider purchasing them anywhere else.

Doug, the latches are reasonably priced but if you prefer to make your own, read frank's build. Called MACK. It has a heavy duty twist latch and it's great OR, you can easily make your own ith 3/8 round Rod and two flat washers

Review these pieces and see if you have an interest.


Make no mistake, there ain't no powder in this Puff ! And... I'm not really a crazy person but I play one in real life
