Making a new handle - bakelite replacement
I have some rather old stainless steel cookware that has what I think are bakelite handles. They are degrading, one has broken; I'm sure the others aren't far behind. I can't find replacements, but it looks like it wouldn't be too hard to shape a new one if I could find the right material. The material would have to be able to be shaped with carbide woodworking tools, but be strong enough to support the weight of the pot. I was thinking about Delrin, but I'm not sure it's ridgid enough.
You guys always come up with good ideas. One more, please....
Here's a picture of the old one.
