Replacement Parts for Bencher Paddles

Fingerpieces for the B-series dual paddles, the ST-series single-lever paddles, and the Hex paddle, are interchangeable. The fingerpieces for B- and ST-series paddles are attached to the levers with eyelets (like rivets) and it is often easier to replace the entire lever assembly than to replace a broken fingerpiece. In the Hex paddle and some very early B/ST paddles the fingerpieces are attached with screws.  In any case, you should consider replacing both fingerpieces even if only one is broken, so that they match each other in color, clarity, and wear.

B-series fingerpieces are clear and will fit both BY and ST-series paddle. 

The replacement lever assemblies for the BY series paddles only, are supplied complete with the contact and the fingerpiece pre-attached.  Note prices for parts are per each, e.g.,  if you want to replace both fingerpieces or both  lever assemblies you
 will need to order two.

If other parts are required, we may have them so please give us a call.  If we don't have them, we can get them!  A parts list is available for the BY series paddles, which you can view by clicking here.

What Others are Saying...

I got it  [the Mercury paddle] this morning,  It's a beatiful machine.  You
told me several years ago that it was the ultimate paddle and you are so r
ight. Now to get it hooked up and wiggle my fingers.
Thanks, Chet NA5DZ

In May I ordered a Bencher RJ-1 Hand Key.  I currently live in the
Philippines and a friend hand carried the key into the Philippines
for me.  I just want to thank you for your prompt service and for
the exceptionally fine Bencher RJ-1.  It is smooth, there is no
lateral movement, the base is nicely weighted, and it was easy to
adjust.  The RJ-1 is not inexpensive, but the workmanship is
excellent and will probably last longer than I will.  Thanks much
for your excellent service!
73,  Tim -- DU9/KE0Q
