Looking to replace the hand wheels on my Ridgid 4511 with some good quality steel or cast iron ones. Anyone else done this?? What did you use??

I don’t have this saw but you could probably check out the grizzly ones, not that pricey.

The grizzly ones look great.Much better than I found on ebay from China even though I bought a few which are nice the eight and ten inch ones look beautiful and would be great to use beware matching the spindle size and get a nice big wheel or two depending upon your needs imho Alistair

You might check with Steel City to see what else they might have that will fit.

+1 for McMaster-Carr. They have handles for days….and the selection system is pretty easy. Can be a little pricey for oddballs though.

This may not be what your wanting but I accidently dropped my old steff powerfeeder and broke the handwheel that lifts the whole unit and just made one out of Santos Mahogany and 6 years later it still works fine…..
