Gloves! Saves your hands and look like you are really working! Even if you get it fixed, gloves are cool. Jim

There's an easy replacement available if you want to go that route. Sears tool department sells a "speed handle" for their socket wrench sets that looks exactly like that tool, except it has a 3/8" square drive on the business end. Get that with the appropriate sized socket.

Take your crank and "sleeve" to any standard hardware store and tell them you need a "roll pin" which will fit into the hole. A flat washer between the "sleeve" and the roll pin will save your tender hands from the roll pin (since you seem reluctant to use gloves.)

I got a length of ⅛" steel rod and cut off a piece about " long. I shoved the piece into the hole in the shaft of the Airstream supplied speed wrench where there's a spinning sleeve for the user's hand. The hole has a spring in it to push the wire out into the internal groove in that handle sleeve. A little light oil on the repaired assembly and I was back in business.
