Talking Thank you sooo much

WE GOT THE HANDLE. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! I have been out of town but Mom called yesterday and said the handle looks wonderful. She said it is in great shape! She hopes we may be able to get the handles to separate but if not she still loves the handle and finds it is much easier to get up with than the other ones she has been working with. I think it may just be the "I know and love this equipment factor". Whatever works.
Thanks again, you have been a lifesaver.

It is awesome to see your mom skiing at 79. Way to go!
Since it looks like your mom skis with the handles apart, does the really need the locking device? I would think you could make up a pair of handles pretty easily.

Hi tommurtha,
Mom would like to send you a thank you card but is unable to read the address on the box. Do you mind sharing your address? She skied with the handle yesterday and really liked it. She needs the handles together to get up then she splits them apart to ski. She can not get up with two handles so even though she can not get these handles apart it is still nice for her to be able ski with a handle she is comfortable with. Thanks.

Thanks for the nice comments about my mom. She is a lot of fun to spend time with. Mom is used to a long single handled rope that is not to large for her hands to get out of the water. Sometimes hanging onto the rope as you get up is the hardest part of skiing as your hands get weaker with age. She likes to ski with two handles so it is a tough one. We should have bought three sets of handles fifty years ago when they were available. Who knew she would still be skiing.

Most epoxies will soften when they get hot - JB Weld, unfortunately, claims to work up to 500F. If those are fiberglass handles, they'll never take that temp.

Your best bet may be to take your set, and remove both handles (hack saw, dremel tool, heat, etc) cleanly, then have a machine shop turn aluminum handles for both sides that fit the metal bits. Make the handles the same diameter as a donor ski handle, then cut the handle and remove the rubber sleeve to fit over the new aluminum handle. Then epoxy or screw the old metal fittings to the new aluminum handles.

I am guessing you now have a huge group of MCers enlisted to watch every flea market and yard sale for more of these handles.....count me as one of them!!
