Undersized winch fitting

I got myself a Chinese electric anchor windlass. It works well but a major problem is I have never been able to get the correct winch Handel for it as the fitting is smaller than a normal sheet winch.

Anyone one have an idea were I might find one even a socket would do.

PS hope the photos of it come through

Re: Undersized winch fitting

The socket appears to be 8 point so a square winch handle will do. Just get one that's a bit large and grind it down until it fits.

Sometimes it's necessary to state the obvious for the benefit of the oblivious.
