Drawer Pull Hardware Sources


Can anyone recommend some good suppliers for vintage style brass dresser drawer pulls?
Iím in the process of refinishing a full bedroom set of older Cushman Colonial Creations furniture that is in need of all new drawer pull hardware. They currently have the original hinged brass plated steel hardware, but it is in pretty bad shape and some of the pulls are broken.
The problem Iím having seems to be finding this style of pulls with mounting screws at 3-1/2" On-Center. I am finding plenty of hardware available from places like Rockler with 3" OC and 2-3/4" OC, etc., but not much with 3-1/2" OC and I really donít want to drill new holes the drawer faces.
I have found some decent used ones in small quantities on Ebay, but the problem is that I need 18 identical hinged brass pulls to complete this project.

Thanks

Did you try Horton Brasses? I know they have a few things 3.5" OC.

Try lee valley. There in Canada. They have everything you can think of...

Just ordered 2 sets of pulls that are cast steel baby hands... Wierd but that's what they want..

Like I said they have a vast array of hardware..

Rocklers a rip off..

Also woodworkers hardware has decent prices..

Horton Brass is a great source but you can look at what White Chapel has to offer too http://www.whitechapel-ltd.com/ I like their product line very much. It is unlike what most other companies offer.

Try Rayburn in Charlestown. They have some fantastic stuff and if they don't have it they can get hold of it.
