As in the last post I have only a picture to show for the moment (taken from the same Buiders Guide) but please note the similarities to the Convergent from the previous entry. It appears the only difference between a Convergent and Mr Adams Spring Hinge is one is double action and the other appears to be single action.
I have as yet only had a call to identify today's blog entry, that being the Robert Adams Convergent, one I have not shown before.
At the moment I have only a picture to show you scanned by Google from Laxton's Builder's Price Book. I believe the Convergent was produced in or around 1872 and I hope to bring you the report on it in the future.
Readers, should by now, have come to the conclusion, among other things, that not all floor springs are equal...
...I hope therefore the message is clear.
All the best

Above is its replacement, just about to be sent out to David at LCM Group for fitting.
As there is so little information out there with regard to door closers, especially vintage and antique model floor springs, I thought I would start this blog.
