WTB Jack Handle

I found a Buckeye jack. I am now in need of a handle if anyone has one available. Original or reproduction is ok. Thank you, Darryl Bobzin

There is a tool vendor at Hershey at the bottom of the stairs on the Chocolate field. Two years ago he had at least 50 that he had cast. I spent some time picking a best one. He gets around 30 bucks.

Thank you Dave. I will check with him for sure if I do not find one. My guess is that most of those became pry bars later in life. Even the later handles for the car & truck jacks are tough to find. Darryl

Tim Morsher repopped them a couple years ago from an original, I know since I hauled them from the local foundry.

Somebody said that the originals were hollow. Maybe Kim D.
