I'll look in my stack - might be a little later tapered handle one that you can install one of my handles on ?

I have an original hand crank and handle in great condition. I'll post a picture later.

The handle I have has the threaded bolt but no slot. Looks to be an unaltered original. What year was the non-slotted bolt produced? Royce?

Is that wood, Mark ? According to current printed literature available, wooden handle was early '09 then "composite" from later '09 to '11.

The ones I have were machined by Otis Clinton - 30 to 40 + years ago - he had a '10 (from Harrah's) and was known to be a "purist". I know your Dad purchased some of his machined parts long ago from Otis !

Perhaps Kim Dobbins might care to weigh in on this subject.

The handle looks to be composite.

Mark,
I could use it if Daniel is not interested.

I had several inquiries. The crank handle has been sold to Dan. Thank you Dan. Thank you MTFCA!

Mark I don't know, but I would say it is pretty early. The rivet hole is another interesting topic, I would like to know when it was drilled offset and when it was level like the one in your photo.

I like the ones that are drilled off level, they place the swing of the crank from 10:00 - 1:00 instead of 9:00 - 12:00. Easier for me to crank that way.

Thanks for the info Royce!

The rivet hole for the ratchet was moved from "90" to 60 degrees (from a line drawn vertical) on 4/14/09. Another interesting feature of the crank that Mark C. shows is the smaller diameter of the arm just adjacent to the handle. This 1/2" diameter was changed to 9/16" on 8/24/09 which remained until the part was changed to the the simpler type around 1921.

The handle, T520, indicates its the same as N-937. The first drawing date is 12/31/07, and specifies "Hard Rubber". Interesting to note is that up until 1/8/12, the handle was knurled rather than being grooved like most reproduction handles we see today.
