This is a 17th century style stock lock.
This simple lock has a wooden body into which all of the iron parts are mounted. The example we used for this lock was roughly constructed, and clearly not intended as an esthetic statement.
The bit of the key is brazed into a slot cut into the end of the shaft.
The bail is made by welding a rod onto the main shaft, which is then bent and welded into a loop.
