John. That is amazing! I’m a big ebay guy, but never even thought of searching for such a part on ebay.
This is the wheel I’m working on

someone made a replacement piece…but didn’t get it quite right
The horizontal spindle is the piece they made

Nice handle, but SURPRISE…no threads

I need to make a replacement for that spindle with threads to work with this threaded hole.

This is a good learning project for me. Making the overalls spindle, getting a nice handle on it, and the over all length and diameter are just my speed. I ‘m going to try one of several router table based methods I found to cut the threads. Lots of cheap pine as test projects coming up !
