My Waterloo walk behinds all have (or should have) a stop button & spring.  Anybody out there know where to buy them?

I don't have them that big, but I have the ones for Wico magnetos.  It is about an inch long with a red plastic button on the end.

I hadn't thought of the Wilco button.  I will check tomorrow to see if it is similar enough.  Looks longer, but I have files.

If the ones on my Handi-Ho's are original, this is the exact match.

How much do you get out of them?  Bolens used them on most of there stuff in the 50s.

The stop switches are $2.25 each.

I'm not surprised.  So did everyone else.  Wico still makes them, that's the only reason I can get them without reproducing them myself.

If the wico doesn't work, I can't think you couldn't make your own somehow. The steel in an old set of feeler gauges might be a good option for the spring steel?

That's true, too, Alan.  I've used pieces of old recoil starter spring for similar applications.

The Wilco button is smaller.  Mine is .640" diameter & .475" tall, whereas the Wilco button is .425" & .400" (all numbers approximate).  That said, I did find one of my missing stop buttons.  It had been used to replace a Wilco button.  Can you add 4 buttons to my order? 

 

Still looking for a replacement, if anyone out there knows where to get the larger stop button & spring.
