Title: Paxton Hardware
Post by: atogrf1 on June 06, 2016, 10:05:21 AM
I am building a large toybox sized carcass and found the hardware I am looking for at Paxton Hardware online.  They are about $30 cheaper than the Horton Brasses version of the chest lock I am looking at.
I know Horton is top of the line, but has anyone had any experience with the quality of the Paxton Hardware?
I don't mind paying up for quality, but I don't need the top of the line in this case and definitely don't want the Woodcraft/Rockler cheapie stuff either.
Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks for reading.

I have personally been dealing with the Horton family for over 40 years, my family, longer than that. When building a piece by hand it should be complimented by quality hardware. With that said I have not dealt with Paxton Hardware.
