Ready made escutcheons

Making escutcheons to a high standard and making a nice shaped keyhole can take time, so coming soon to the hardware section will be ready made wooden and mother of pearl escutcheons. To fit you first fit your lock and cut an approx keyhole, then place you escutcheon over this and insert your key line up to get the key perfectly centered and tape in place, lightly scribe around with a sharp blade just breaking the wood fibers. Then using a small router or scratch stock carefully remove the material to the line. These will have a perfect keyhole cut to match the Neat lock’s key and will be available in the following shapes & materials – RECTANGLE in 1.5mm ebony,curly maple, lacewood and Zebra wood. For more traditional style OVAL and DIAMOND in 0.7 mm mother of pearl.
