A genuine set of reclaimed vintage surgeon lever hospital taps. Made in Scotland by'Shanks', likely in the 1930's or 40's.
Mechanical quarter turn levers, operated by 7 inch levers. Deck mounted with 1/2 BSP feed pipes. 7.5" feed pipe centres, 7" spout reach. Gently buffed to yield a gleaming finish.All our taps have had the following work completed. Old finish chemically removed by licensed and environmentally responsible local firm. Tap seats re-machined to obviate the risk of slow drips, as is common on old taps. New compressed fibre washers cut to size by hand using imperial wad punches on a fly press. Spindles lathe turned to meet specific tolerances. Gland nut packing repacked in the traditional method using graphite string. This stops water leaking from below the handles. Polished, again by hand, using a polishing lathe. See our other listings for more stunning English taps. We operate a small machine shop and can complete custom machining and modifications. We can also get any tap plated in chrome, nickel or copper. We operate a small engineering workshop and can carry out any modifications required.
