Millers Falls #2 Crank Knob Replacement

Prototype MF #2 eggbeater drill replacement crank knob.

For the past several months I have been working on a replacement knob for the Millers Falls #2 eggbeater drill crank handle. Today I finished the first prototype, pictured above. There are a few minor details to be worked out, but the project is almost ready for release to my customers.

Here you see the underside of the crank assembly showing the attachment method.

After working out the minor issues all that remains is to put the red varnish on the knob. The replacement knob will come with all the necessary mounting hardware. All the user need do is grind the peened head off of the original knob stud thus allowing removal of the original knob.

As always thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment.

    Very nice. Does it still spin freely? Does the diameter match the original? Lets see one in walnut 🙂

    Hi, this is exactly what I need if it fits a #2b that I inherited. Do you do the side handle as well? Your work is excellent.
