Seldom seen and discussed, but someone posted about it here not too long ago. One came up on ebay, BIN reasonable so i picked it up for the simple reason that I didn't have one.

How do you load it? More popular model you just pull the keeper and it frees the two line halves. I used it years ago. This one, you have to remove six screws and nuts? And, where are the line exit holes? Nicely made. Quality. Spring loaded tab type locks. More expensive to produce than the other model.

First stop, the way-back machine:  Ian says:   https://www.coxengineforum.com/t6560-cox-control-line-handle

Second Stop: https://www.coxengineforum.com/t8880-cox-handy-reel-instructions-wanted?highlight=Handy+Reel

Third: my2cents. Looks like these handles come apart by removing the screws, the handles are attached to the reels from the inside, so DON"T try and pry them off or you'll break them! As with any thing with small screws, buttons and springs, take a picture of it before attempting disassembly.  I haven't found any printed instructions for these,but it looks like one side is held in place by the spring loaded button, while you reel the opposite side, somewhat similar to the "SKYLON" handle reel.

There is one on e-bay now:  Blue and Clear,  if you're starting a collection.Someone want to clue me in about using this Cox handle?   Scree179

Thanks Rene, I enjoyed Ian's post "4.24967 " - or there abouts" regarding line spacing. It might be Cox's answer for using steel lines vice dacron.

I still have some left-over steel lines but doubt if i will go to the trouble of loading them, same for collecting although the other poster in that thread does, having "hundreds" of handles.

I'm surprised that with all the Cox people here, there is not more posted about them. They might be more trouble than they are worth. Mine goes in the display case with the others.

Best thing for that handle Bob. Clear plastics and 50 years later is essentially egg shell like.

Agreed. Found it's way into my display case along with a bunch of rescued engines and my old Carl Goldberg handle that goes back to my hollow log teen years. Fuel soaked lines and all.

Lost it along with this engine when I had them in a box stored in the rafters when i built the ceiling in. Forgot about it, months later I went looking for them and remembered. Dropped ceiling panel and recovered them. Tiverton Rhode Island.

Bought in 1953/4, older than most here. No question that if I fueled it up and lit the fire it would still run like a champ.
