winch handle

My father and I are restoring a 1974 Macgregor Venture 25 and are almost finished. I have searched high and low for a winch handle for the stock winches that are on it. I have attached a pic of the winch. Does anyone know where I could find a handle for this un-marked winch. Or maybe someone has one they are willing to part with.

i would call bacon and assoc in annapolis maryland, get an email addy and send that pic. they should be able to identify it, and maybe have a handle for it.

if they dont, they sell used stuff to you might be able to get a modern one for a decent price

snubber winch?

Is it possible that it does not use a winch handle? There are some small winches, called snubber winches, that are designed just for holding the sheet as you pull it is manually.

I think KS might be correct. The top of that winch doesn't look like one that accepts a handle.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

How about a flat bar that would fit the cut out and a hole to fit over the center and a handle.

It looks like the handle could be lifted off the driving dogs without comming off the center part.

Just a thought.

I was thinking about trying that. Thanks for validating my thoughts. I will make on out of steel to see if it works. If it does I will weld one out of stainless. ( i teach sculpture and have tig that will do it)

You could have a machine shop punch one out for you. Or if you are willing to learn a new skill. buy the stock and do it yourself.
