One of the handwheels on my Arrihead 1 was recently damaged on the feature I just wrapped.  One of the little spuds you hold with your fingers while turning the wheels was bent/damaged, and it now doesn't rotate smoothly (again, just the spud, not the handwheel itself).  Production will be paying for a new one, but whoever is in charge of this department at Arri in Germany is out of the office until September.  While I can wait, I was wondering if there was anywhere else I should be looking to find a replacement (even a used one).  I've attached a photo since my description was underwhelming.  Thanks in advance.

Sorry just notice that doesn't include the part you need.

It's the complete hand wheel, might be a good idea to have a spare.

Thanks James.  I did buy the handwheel you linked on Ebay as a backup, but I still need a new/used thumb knob (or two) for the pan/tilt wheel to replace the damaged one.  Thanks for any assistance.

$$$. See if you can reach one of the head service techs at Otto's or Clairmont and maybe they have some spare parts to sell. Or Transylvania: http://www.transfilm.com

Try Arri Rental in Munich. Not sure if they will sell, but they stock a lot of used parts that are in good condition. We had a similar issue on an Arrihead 2 that we had rented out of Berlin when one of the wheels was dropped, and they shipped out a spare crank handle the same day. It was used, but in good condition.
