Here's a new design I've been working on with Sal:  a counterbalanced handle for jigmaster/112h. The dimensions are posted a page or two back, but here's the actual handle with counterweight attached.  The counterweight came out to 1.25 oz, and all components are made from 316 stainless.   

Pricing is $16 for just the handle, and $24 for the handle, counterweight, and mounting screw.

Nice work Adam! I like the resurrection of the older style handles with a twist (SS). What grip would you put on there? I'm thinking it would look cool with an old walnut knob like the days of old.
Thanks for bringing another cool addition to the site,

I agree with Dom, very nice work Adam.

Are you considering the next size up (349H/113H) ?? Also think a 115 would be awesome with a old style counterbalance handle.

I very well could have larger sizes made.

Heres the 112H/jigmaster handle after a little quality time with the tumbler.

I also drew up a balanced handle for the 113H and 114H.  The knob to gear sleeve length is a bit shorter than my other handles, but I figured balanced handles arent really suited to fish winch duty, but more about speed.  The PDF's will print actual size.

Those look awesome Adam, I wish you could do the same with the 112H's, maybe making them a little wide might help.

Adam, if you can do the 112h with the handle arms that you have on that 113h I'll take two. I'll see if I have any 113h's in need of a handle. What knobs would you put on these?
Looking good bro,

Ill see what I can do.  Im pretty slammed with work now, so its going to be a couple of weeks before I can even get some prototypes done. 

Mine is getting a round aluminum like this:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/221360463358?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2648&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Adam, we have had lots of parts made here from many and all have been great so far, but to me, that latest counterbalanced handle on the 4/0 is the best I've seen to date... Excellent work!
If you have some extra, please put one in the box. I'll always take a 3/16 hole on all, I'll enlarge it if I need to.
If you remember, that is exactly what I requested for the smaller ones, but you said you didn't have the room. I'm hoping you could make the same for those as well without changing the length, I'm sure you'll figure it out.

About that knob that you're showing, it does look very nice, but i don't like them. I ordered a couple two years ago and gave them away, I thought the post was too weak, but it could just be me.
 
These are actually stronger, but don't look as nice.

They will need a drop of blue loctite, I had the top part of the knob come loose while fishing.

These feel the best to me

the seller above also has them, but I couldn't find them with a 9 degree angle, 18 degree to me is too much.

I also want to mention that Black Pearl's sent me a knob a while back, they are great. I told him that I like them and he said he was going to try to offer those, but I'm not sure he will.

With that said, no one has made a handle with the shaft as strong as the one that our boss Alan offers here, those can't be beat.

Wow Adam, you nailed it with that 113H version. I'll take a couple if and when they become available, and a couple of the 114H as well...nice work once again !!

Adam,
    I'll take 2 of each in this newer version with the counter balance... 112h and 113h when you get things sorted. Can anyone tell me the benefits of the 3/16" hole or the 5/16" hole? I'd like more info to weigh my options.  If anyone has knob ideas kick 'em out to put the cherry on top of this very cool upgrade. 
I love the kolekkar grips but was thinking something old school might look extra cool with this handle, but functionality has to be there, also.
Thanks for making these, you hit the nail on the head with this one.

Dom, the 3/16" will work with most handles knobs you see on line, the 5/16" will work with Alan's handle knob.
These wouldn't do too good with a 5/16" hole
