SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

window crank replacements for my Dad

A handy person from Dallas area says:
Hey there. Thanks for helping.

My Dad sent me the attached pic for a Getty bronze crank. You have one that looks the same. other than it's brown or aluminum.

He is out of town, and so it's hard for me to get what we need, i.e. multiple pics from multiple angles. He has tried to explain the following, which is hard to understand when I don't have the thing in my hands.

tear-dropped shaped gears inside handle (hope this makes sense)
4 3/4 and 3 7/8 distance between mounting holes (i hope this means there re 4 holes with 2 different spacings)
3/4 inch track for the washer
arm is 9" (according to him, but i don't know where he is measuring from)

He is pretty adamant about wanting bronze. Maybe I could take some aluminum ones and get 'em anodized.

Anyway, again, thanks.

Bill

Hey, Bill. I have a good sense of where your Dad is coming from. I think you were right in looking at our 39-044, this seems to be our best replacement option. The company that made your original operator is no longer in business. I would wager it was most likely anodized with the bronze finish, while ours are just painted, but it's the only one I could find that matches yours.
