    Started with a 5" dia. Schedule 80 pipe.
    Sliced a section out. Found a couple of 1/2" dia. ball bearing.

    Way to go joe !
    Traditional for sure... no aftermarket then...
    you or someone fabbed the part...
    in shipyard towns lots of guys could get stuff chromed on the cheap...
    For 24 years we electroless knickel plated at GE... pretty close for the price…

    Inside handles that lift.
    Interesting enough, saw a Model A caberlay ( think I spelt that wrong) today with rotory style handle and I'm pretty sure it's stock.
