Looking for Stanley handle
#9
  Re: (...)
Hi,
I posted this on the hand tool forum, someone suggested i should post it here.
Looking for a "new" handle for my Stanley #4. I screwed up the one I was trying to refinish. Might also 
consider a knob if the price was right. The screw on mine seems way to proud.

Thanks

To fix the knob screw being proud, just judiciously grind down the threaded rod a little bit, might take two grindings as you can't replace what you grind off so take a little at a time, that will take care of that issue.

This little trick is a great way to fix a loose tote also.  Works like a charm.

Here is an option in case you cannot find an original tote. Nicobie is a regular poster on WoodNet.
