My husband is refinishing the case for my new to me Jones CS Handcrank machine. The bolts for the handle must have been replaced at some point, and we can't find any that fit. The case has a beautiful burled walnut veneer.

I assume that you need the two nuts that thread onto the male handle threads.  Can you accurately determine the thread diameter and pitch (threads per inch).  Also you should have a metal plate that would go over those bolts before the nuts are installed, and not just a couple of washers.

Haha, yes, it's the nuts. They are 1/4" diameter and looks like 28 threads per inch.

Lyncat, I took the handle off of my Jones....yes it is 1/4 inch, and exactly 24 threads per inch, see photo.  Nothing from the hardware store will fit.  It is not British standard, BA. BSC, BSCy, or Whitworth.  Looks like Harley Davidson used this size, pre war (WW2).    100_0257.JPG 100_0258.JPG

Helen Howes may have the nuts.  I can't guarantee that your threads measure the same as mine.

1/4-24 nuts are an old standard from pre-war days.  I've owned quite a few vintage Indian motorcycles over the years and they all used that size in many locations.  That package from Colony is the easiest way to get them.

Thanks for your help! I'm going to turn to my old friends who are Indian motorcycle enthusiasts!

It seems the responses to your handle question were answered, Great!
While we are talking Jones case covers, I have one of the first Jones CS'
dating 1893/94. It came with a case cover from later years. The problem I have is that the cover I need was only made for those 2 years.
Helen can not ship covers to the US.
 Any idea's?
Thank you,
Steve
