Does anyone out there have front door hardware for sale? We have a six panel door that needs to be replaced and would love to get back to the original style.

Sally,

Search this forum for "front door", and I'm sure you'll find what you need, in a new door. I just replaced my six panel front door with a plain solid core door available from any home store. They don't cost very much. I bought good quality stain nickel hinges and a Kwikset knob set with a 5" backset (distance from edge of door to handle). That doesn't provide you the escutcheon, which don't seem to be available (see other messages on this board), but provides the correct backset in case someone comes up with a source.

Good luck.
