: I need a handle for a Mitchell 302. I think a 302, 306, 402 and 906 are all interchangeable
Might be able to help you out with a handle for your Mitchell 302. I collect Mitchells & have a fair number of spare parts. You're right, in that several different Mitchell handles will fit on a 302. Of course, to a collector there are several different vintage versions of handles that are correct for the different versions of the 302 over the nearly 30 years it was produced. It would help to know what you want. As a guide the common early handle is straight out of the hub piece w/smooth bullet shaped nut at rear. The common later style's handle rises at an angle from the hub & has a squared coarse grip nut at end. Both have black plastic torpedo knobs & are dull aluminum. The 402s went thru the similar changes, but are chrome over brass & have round plastic knobs. Let me know what you'd like. What went wrong w/your old handle?
