I've been thinking about getting a nice hanging horn for my Home, which at one time came equipped with a horn crane, as you can see from the screw holes in the back of the cabinet. I figured on trying to get something like what it originally had so I don't have to see those holes every time I turn the cabinet around. I tried finding some pictures online about how the mounting hardware for a crane like this may have looked like, so that maybe I could try reproducing it, but I couldn't find anything, so I'm trying here. The distance between the holes is 1 ½" x 4". If somebody has a crane that looks like it would fit these screw holes, please send some pictures and a few measurements? Anything would be appreciated!

At first I thought you needed a Hawthorne & Sheble No.4, but when I measured mine, the distance between the holes for each bracket is 1 ⅛". Are you sure about your measurement?

Yeah. . . my bad, It is 1 ⅛". Thanks for the information! Looking at that crane makes me think my best bet is to wait and try to find an original rather than trying to reproduce it. Thank you for the quick reply!

You'll be able to find an original. Just be sure you get the long bracket type meant for the "New Style" cabinet on your Home.
