The size is stamped into the boss. The first bit is the diameter and the second bit is the pitch. Call the man, give him the figures and he'll make you another of the other hand.

Just FYI there is a tool for it if you want to be a professional prop duplicator. :-) It's a pretty pricey piece of work, but beautifully made.

There are no numbers stamped on it so I guess it isn't a propshop so I've ordered a pair anyhoo
