Question
how easy is it to remove the handle and can you get replacement brass one for as it is a home made steel one
Cheers Pete

Answer
It is normally very easy to remove the handle. On the inside of the door or on the back of the doorplate when the cover is removed, is a bolt. Undo it and the handle comes off. There is no standard dimensions for anything, so although an old handle off ebay could easily fit, it is unlikely to do so neatly without light metalwork and threading.
