Challenge 26.5 Lever Cutter Questions

How in the heck do you get the chrome part of the lever handle out?
I would love to get it re-plated, is there a secret to it?

I was hoping someone could answer this as well?
I am looking to replace the guide tape measure on my cutter, it was broke in a move! So it has giving me a real headache to try and find a 5/8” flat metal tape measure to replace it. Any suggestions?

I have a buddy that I might take it to, who could possible Tig weld it back together, but if I could find a replacement that would be great.
It broke next to the clamp on the pole of the back guide.

Thanks Mike

If it broke on the back side of the pole, try punching a hole in the center of the old tape, back about a half inch or so and putting a tension spring from the hole back to the pole screw.

No such luck !! Broke in the front… bummer
I think I am going to use some thin sheet metal and epoxy a short piece to it and clamp it up….. we will see
Thanks Mike
