WTB Roller Handle for Star Universal Press
« on: November 20, 2020, 03:31:48 pm »
Looking for a roller handle. Preferably one that angles out like the stock one so that your hand or thumb does not contact the loader on the down stroke.

I have used roller handles in the past but I prefer the round ball over the roller. With the roller you are stuck with the one position with your wrist and with the ball it seems to have more motion while making the turn so it does not get fatigued as bad.
Make any sense?

I can always try one to see if it works better for me. Where do I get the round ball type of crank shaft handle?

Sorry I just saw that nobody has answered the question.
I copied one off of the the RCBS Rock Chucker that was on the bench next to it.
I'm in the machine shop for work several days a week so it was easy to ask to make one.
Seems to remember a 1/2 rod threaded on one end and a 2 inch plastic ball from McMaster-Carr.
Warmed it up and put a couple of bends in it and it took care of my needs.
The stock wooden handle does the same with the round end. You can palm the handle as you go
 thru the motion unlike the hold on the roller handle.
Sorry for the slow answer.
