I use(d) a metal bar as leverage to turn the handle (wheel). The
wheel had two handles which are too small. Just now, I snapped one of
them, then I used a hammer to get it moving and snapped the other,
now all I have is a wheel.
It is very hot here today. I think that is why they broke.
Anyhow, I am wondering if anybody here has had to replace a handle
and what did they use? My first thought was a car steering wheel, but
I don't think I can find one that will fit.
It is a major hassle for me organising to weld something up, but I
might end up doing that.
Any ideas would be helpful,
Broken vulcaniser handle fixed
I am replying to my own post, sorry.
All I had to do was saw through the wheel leaving the inner spoke
exposed, free to push my hollow metal bar over and it is better then
it was before. I don't need two handles as I can take the wheel off
and turn it around (It is is in a tight corner). I wish I had have
thought about that before I started swinging a hammer at it, but in
the end the fix was easy and it is better to boot.
