This a quick post to discuss the hugely oversized floor springs I have mentioned previously. As you can see the component parts are nearly ready for assembly and testing on the bench, more to follow in the future!
I have not for quite a while shown readers anything from my collection so today I would like to share with you a salesman's sample of Gibbons's check shoe spring (sometimes known as a heel spring). It is almost identical to the ones I found in Rugby.
As always please feel free to comment.
I was recently sent these pictures of some old Gibbons from a most prestigious building and asked to give a price to repair/service, as readers can see it is probably best if I have a site visit to ascertain just exactly what is the problem over and above the obvious. I hope in the future to bring you more about these fine Gibbons closers.
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.
