jalousie window crank circa 1940-50"s

A handy person from New Hampshire says:
It is a split arm with long handle crank. Coming out from the housing (which measures exactly as your 39-005 but has only one screw whole to attach to the window casing) is an A1 and the longer piece of the swing arm has 8374. I purchased four of your 39-005 cranks but the nodule that is suppose to be inserted into the aluminum frame and screw in, does not quite fit through the hole (almost but not quite). The arm I currently have,does not screw in, but slides through the hole in the aluminum window casing, then a very thin piece of rounded metal slides into place over the "grommet"?? I hope this makes sense to somebody because I have no pictures to send you. Thanks!

Would you be able to show us a couple pictures of the hardware you have now out of the window? That will help us in our search. Due to the age of your window we may not be able to find an exact match, but perhaps we can find another solution.

Thanks!

Tom, Did you receive the pictures I sent. I hope we can work with these. I did order your 39-005 (I think that was the #) but had to return them for they did not fit thru the whole in aluminum frame and were a screw as opposed to what you see in the picture.

Thanks again for your patience. I believe our 39-005 is the closest match we have to yours. The main gear arm is set up in the opposite direction from yours, giving the appearance that the screw is on the wrong side, but it should still work in or window. The only thing is, you will need to drill out the hole a little larger in the window to accept the screw sector.
