Lewmar Ocean Portlight Handles

I am looking to find some Portlight Handles off an older Lewmar Ocean Portlight which were made between 1990 and 2000.

Re: Lewmar Ocean Portlight Handles

Unfortunately its not either of those. I actually called Lewmar, and they no longer appear to be making them, while they have a company that has started making some replacement parts for some of their hatches/portlights, these are not included. So I need to find a 1-2 pairs that are just lying around, or that can be salvaged.

You can see a picture of the handles here

or here if you scroll down and look at the Ocean Portlights

Re: Lewmar Ocean Portlight Handles

I have the same problem. I was going to just replace the whole portlight with a new one but after reading this thread I realized if you have the original engineering drawing of the handle you could probably print it using a 3D printer.

I just sent Lewmar a request for an engineering drawing of the handle. I suggested they publish drawings for all the parts they no longer stock.

If I get the drawing I'll either share it here if allowed or share instructions on how to obtain the drawing.

If I don't get the drawing I might ask my friends son who just completed his high school CAD class to try to draw one up. If it works I'll gladly share it here.

A company I work with just bought a new 3D printer that can print carbon fiber. They claim it's stronger than aluminum. They offered to make a replacement handle. It's going to take a few more weeks as they haven't received the printer yet. I'll post if it works out.

Thanks Rick that sounds hopeful! Did you get the original engineering drawing of the handle from Lewmar?

I didn't get the drawings from Lewmar. We're going to use an app that uses a Kinect camera to take a 3D image of a good handle. If it works I'll share the image.

Re: Lewmar Ocean Portlight Handles

I'm sorry to bring up an old thread, but I've been looking for a while for any spare or replacement options. Does anyone know if any progress was made on this? Thanks!

Re: Lewmar Ocean Portlight Handles

Have you contacted Lewmar? I bought some from them (6 or 8 years ago) directly; I think they came in lots of 8 or 10.
