Ceiling screws

Postby JimF » Thu Oct 26, 2017 7:48 am

I am freshening up my 1930 Model 100. What would be the correct screws to use to install the ceiling planks?

If my memory is correct, my 1928 has #6 oval head slot screws. yours may be chrome plated.
My 2 cents.

That's what I was wondering. Chrome, brass or that dark bronze color?

When I removed my originals there was plating, most likely nickel like the rest of the hardware. Your hardware was probably chrome, along with the screws.

The originals in 1930 would likely be #6 x 3/4 (or 1"), Oval, Slotted, Nickel plated. Nowadays they follow the Nickel plating with chrome to stop the tarnishing of Nickel. That's all that's available now anyway.

The 'darker bronze'; "Statuary Bronze" (As used in statues.., NOT Statutory as often seen advertised), was used in the mid-50's.
