BURNISHED KNOBS. THEY ARE ESSENTIALLY INDISTINGUISHABLE DIMENSIONALLY WHEN

THAT YOU WOULD BE RECEIVING (YOUR CHOICE). INSTALLATION IS MADE A BREEZE IF THE
DOOR IS PER-DRILLED WITH A 5/32" BIT IN A HAND DRILL, AND THEN DRILLED DOWN

DIFFERENT VENDORS SO WE CHOSE THE BEST CAST KNOB EVER PRODUCED THAT MATCHES 90%

MACEY-WERNICKE® COMPANY IN 1904. THEREFORE THE HARDWARE IS THE SAME BUT WE HAVE
SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT MORE ACCURATE AGED MACEY KNOBS ON HAND IF THAT IS THE BRAND
YOU ARE MATCHING. JUST LET US KNOW.
For sale: A SINGLE, 1, (ONE) of the NEW PRODUCTION FACTORY RE-RELEASED
AGED/BURNISHED OR SATIN FINISHED knob from the actual Globe Wernicke® Macey
Corporation (Globe Wernicke® acquired Macey in 1904 and was MACEY-WERNICKE® for
a time- see 3rd photo of 1904 factory Macey-Wernicke® ad for reference). THE
PRICE IS FOR A SINGLE KNOB IN THE SATIN OR AGED BURNISHED FINISH OF YOUR CHOICE
AND SCREW IN MOUNTING STUD. The default knob mailed is the aged/burnished knob
unless we hear otherwise from the buyer. In the second photo of the 2 different
finishes: the one on the left is the Satin finish, the second knob is the
Aged/Burnished finished knob.THE SATIN KNOB HAS A MORE UNIFORM MATCHING SMOOTH
FINISH. THE AGED/BURNISHED KNOBS HAVE VARIATIONS IN FINISH COLOR AND TEXTURE
WITH WHAT APPEAR TO BE SMALL IMPERFECTIONS DUE TO AGE. The Satin knob is for
more of a clean exacting matched finished look. The Aged/Burnished look just
like aged antique originals as reported in feedback from buyers. THESE KNOBS
ARE EXACTING TO FACTORY ORIGINALS! The knobs we are offering are one of the
most common styles that were used.They measure 9/16" Diameter across the Top,
by 7/16" Height projection, by 3/8" across the bottom of the base of the knob.
Macey had 3 original knob styles. We have the other 2 Macey styles currently in
the works for re-release.

REGARDING THE AGING PROCESS. Many think that the process of getting that
perfect aged look of these knobs through Aging and Burnishing is easy. It is
NOT. I can't begin to tell you of the hours, money, equipment and injuries
invested in getting it right. To get that perfect aged look to your antique
Macey Globe Wernicke® stacks we: start with a Polished knob (2nd Photo for
reference), then soak the knob in strong stripper for a week to remove the
baked on hardened lacquer finish off. The Polished knobs with their baked
hardened lacquer coating will probably never age (SERIOUSLY). Then the knobs
are fine wire wheeled, fine cloth high buff wheel polished with compound,
cleaned with thinner, then put into the acid aging solution for just exactly
the right amount of time. They are then allowed to dry for 24 hours. Next they
are wiped down by hand, then lightly Burnished on a high speed cloth buffing
wheel (dry) to give that perfect luster Burnished/Aged look OR hand buffed at
this point for that Satin look. Because of the exhaustive work involved we
perform this process in batches of Fifty knobs at a time. There may be a wait
time if we are in between batches. The total process takes about 10 days. We
use these very same Aged/Burnished or Satin knobs on our own inventory of
cases. They look fabulous installed and matching in size.The aged/burnished
finishes vary just enough to give the entire stack installation a flawless,
authentic to original look. Whether it is a 100 year old knob or our new
re-released aged/burnished knobsno two finishes are identical. If you want
close to identical finishes the satin knobs are the best choice for this or the
polished knobs. TheSATIN knobs will not match the finish of an original aged
installed knob from 1900. Often the stack units have been "married together"
over time as more books were added to the library. That often resulted in a
diverse different style of knobs(and aged finish) on different sections. This
is picked up by admirers (buyers?) of your stack. We universalize all our
stacks and libraries. In our experience the Aged/Burnished or Satin knobs look
best on the Oak stacks in Walnut stains (the predominate stain on 80% of all
units produced). The Polished brass looks best on the Fumed Oak, Golden Oak,
Mahogany stained Oak, True Mahogany and Mahogany stained Birch units. These are
all the standard stain options offered by the Globe Wernicke® Macey Corporation.
See our other eBay ad for the Polished brass versions. Everyone has their own
preference and now we can meet your individual tastes no matter what your
