I was handed an old Craftsman Model Master that had a repaired broken crank handle with a missing knob, and a missing cap for the handle, and asked if I could turn new parts for it. Of course.
I used some reclaimed cherry from a pallet (hence the staple holes), and turned a solid handle for the main body, and a small knob for the crank. It seemed appropriate to use reclaimed wood for this poor old drill. A couple of coats of lacquer wiped on, and it’s done. It took longer to find the right size bolts and straighten out the ferrule than it did to turn the parts….
