Spindle Handles

I make new replacement spindle handles for most vises (Wilton and others) out of 1144 Cold Formed CRS which is as tough as it gets. The shaft acts like a spring, and of course you CAN bend it, but it is much stronger than original.

Some handles match up with the steel diameters that are available and listed below.  If you need a diameter that is not sold, I can make the hole in your spindle a bit larger to accept the next size up.  I have found that some of the older vises have worn enough that the hole has become oblong and sloppy anyway, so it is best to rework it for a tighter fit.
 
I also attach the ball ends like they did over 50 years ago, and make the knobs as dimensionally close to original as I can. I heat and peen the ends so they will not come off. If you prefer I can attach yours if you mail me your spindle.  If you want to attach the handle yourself, then I will attach one end so you have an example to follow.

I found 7/16 and 9/16 1144 bar stock April-2017.

These handle diameters are available for me to order:

1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16, 5/8, 3/4, 13/16, 7/8, 1.0, 1-1/8 and 1-1/4.

I can not get this diameter in 1144 steel: 11/16

It takes good communication and a bit of time for the back and forth, but I am happy to work with you to get your vise right.  Most handles from 3/8 dia. to 1-1/4 dia. will start around $60. Look Here.

If you want to make your own then Here is how I do it.
