Well, my clumsiness strikes again. In the home stretch of rehabbing a stanley 923 brace I managed to break one of the ratchet pawls. Had it in a vice and thought it was in neutral position, needless to say it wasnt so I managed to break one of them. Does anyone have a spare or know of a source for some? I checked my other parts braces and none of them are the right size / style for this one. Thanks in advance. While I’m at it, does anyone know what size bearings the palm grip takes? When I disassembeled it I discovered that someone had removed the bearings from the stop. Thanks again.

Tim

That’s not a piece you see on fleabay every day (I’m guessing actually – haven’t been on there in 2.7 eons.)

I’ve replaced wood and fixed jaw springs but I never thought to disassemble the ratcheting mechanism. If you can take pics of the assembly with instructions on how to deconstruct without destroying it, I can see if I’ve got a beater laying around with the same style.

No pictures for now (sorry, not near it now) but on a 923 its easy to take the assembly out. There is a nut on top of the ratchet assembly that is threaded on to a threaded shaft coming out of the top of the chuck assembly which passes through the ratchet “box”. Pull a cotter pin running through the nut, unscrew the nut, and the entire chuck assembly comes out the bottom of the ratchet assembly. The two pawls are held in by drift pins running top to bottom through the ratchet box. I didn’t actually have the pawls out, the one broke while it was still attached to the ratchet box. It is actually a very nice design that allows you to remove any of the slop that may develop in the interface between the chuck and ratchet assembly. Just oull the pin, tighten the nut, replace pin and it’s factory tight again

Well life decided to take a big giant dump on my head yesterday so I haven’t had time to go look at an actual 923 but here’s a pic of the remains of something that used to be a brace that appears like it might be close. I tried to unscrew that piece up top but couldn’t, but the only screwdriver I’ve got near the computer is too small.
