SS Pot, needs handle idea's.

mikie_gwMay 24, 2011

My favorite hand me down really old, really nice SS cook pot - its Plastic handle gave up on me from heat/cold/soap/old age.

Give me some suggestions to make a lasting handle without hit and miss experimenting.

Pot has an attached one inch deep ss-tube female socket, imagine a 3/4 inch flat topped emt with a single screw in the bottom to stick a handle inside of.

I know I can scrape a hardwood dowel to fit the hole, but its gonna see heat and lots of soap/water ..... open to suggestions/ideas. Thanks.

I turned a cherry handle for an aluminum saucepan somewhere around 1994. I'm still using it. The pot doesn't go in the dishwasher, and the handle has developed some cracks but it remains functional.

For yours, I think I'd make sure the wood was SUPER dry before turning it to size, so that it swells to a very tight fit after assembly.
