Mrs. Applewash saw my new advertisement in the PennySaver USA. She wanted a nightstand drawer brass handle that was or forty years old repaired. She had no parts and she needed it repaired as soon as possible.
This post shows the six steps in repairing this nightstand drawer handle. This is a quick fix job. Mrs Applewash was having company over and did not have the time to do this job correctly, the brass drawer handle needed to be re-ordered to repair correctly.
Step 1: Above fig.1 shows the drawer bolt has separated from the drawer anchor. Part of the reason why this drawer bolt was able to keep the drawer on the inside is that the handle had a metal sleeve that extended to the back end of the drawer. Once the screw was placed it secured one side of the handle.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the right side nightstand brass handle, the brass metal screws and plastic which will be used to fill the space missing from the damaged handle.
