Wondering if any members could help locate a cast Alloy handle for my Workmate (WM325-I think!)
A temp plastic replacement was fitted & works OK but it's annoying the hell out of me (obsessive??!!!)
The enclosed photos show the Blue handle which is the one I need to find.

Al,
Here in Canada more specifically Montreal, Black and Decker had a store where I ordered the plastic springs that hold the legs closed. I imagine if you contact Black & Decker you should be able to get exactly what you need. Another way is to check the local ''for sale'' websites, you might find a complete unit foe very little money. For even less money, paint it blue ! LOL

Many thanks Guys but I'm looking for the original Alloy crank which is unobtainable as a new part. This WM is in such good condition that the plastic handle detracts from it's excellent overall design

Many thanks Ray, Craigslist over here is a total shambles (e.g. a search 2mins ago for 'tools' turned up 0 in the entire Greater Edinburgh Area approx pop 500,000) I think it's mostly used for jobs or fluid exchanging encounters of a dubious nature! I was posting here because there is a far far greater chance of this part being available Stateside

Thanx guys,

I just ordered 2 handles for the broken ones on my old WM.

Shipping was more than the handles, but it's a good old work pal.

I would imagine without taking a handle off mine that they are just a round shaft under the handle so it shouldn't be too complicated to find something similar. You could probably even fit a round hand wheel onto it. That would make it interesting.
