Q: Good morning : I am looking for old desk handles 31/2″ wide for 80 ish year old desk. There used to be a hardware store on Green Ave. where I was able to get them , they don’t seem to be there any more. I know I could get them from Lee Valley, but I would prefer getting them here in Montreal. I have your No. 14 issue. I would appreciate any info you could give me.
