Exhibit cases

From: Everett C. Wilkie Jr. <everett>

We have several display cases with broken locks and the locksmith is at
a loss to find parts to repair them.  The cases are flat, the kind with
glass tops that swing up on rear mounted piano hinges used to display
books and manuscripts.  The locks are about the diameter of pencils and
turn two rods (one on each side) that engage hooks in the case top.

Does anyone know of a source for replacement cylinders for these locks?
The cases are not all that old but are apparently antiquated so far as
locksmiths are concerned.
