Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2009: Window crank handle

I have a 1924 Fordor and one of the window handles is missing. Turns out that the ones being sold at parts houses I've checked are not like the three on my car. Has any one seen one for sale. Hopefully I'll be able to attach a picture to this thread. Ed

Keep this in mind. If you strike out finding an original Bob Scherzer can cast you a new handle exactly like your original. If the escutcheon plate, nut and handle are missing that may be more trouble.

Ed I sent you an email I have the handle, but w/out the knob portion it is still screwed onto the inside set-up, I'll look for it tommorrow to see if it has the escutcheon portion on it danuser88@socket.net

Ed, I have a 24 Coupe that has the same handles as your car does. Your handle is made of aluminum like mine. You can get a buffer, and make those screws and estucheon lates look really nice short of having the brass parts replated. The aluminum handles will come out super nice. I bought a buffer from Harbour freight tools along with somw buffing compound and my handles look like new. For the price you cant beat harbour freight on buffers and related items.

I have cast these crank handles but while at Hershey this year I ran into a mother load of these which I got cheaper then I could make them for. I also got an equal number of the escutcheons but I still have to make the door locks cast in brass and center screws which are done in stainless steel. Bob

Could sure use 4 of the center screws if and when you produce them Bob.

How do you want them made up? In brass or stainless. The brass would need to be plated but the stainless saves the cost of plating and the color match with nickle plated cranks isn't that bad but if you wanted it the way it was done originally then you need the brass one and then to be nickle plated. The upside to stainless is it don't pop off plating if you upset the screw slot when tightening. Bob
