    Do you recongnize these mould handles?

    I have one set of handles that fit my Saeco moulds. It was not a problem when I had one mould, but now I have 3 Saeco moulds. It looks a little like modern Saeco handles, but has 2 sets of holes rather than one and works well on 2 and 4 cavity moulds.

    Thanks Matt

    They look like Saeco handles to me.

    Hope this helps.

    I have 18 SAECO sets of handles, 4 of the handles have 2 sets of holes and the other 14 sets have one set of holes.. All of the handles work on my 15 sets of 8 cav SAECO moulds, all of the 4 cav SAECO's and the one early 5 cav SAECO mould

    All of the current model handles seem to only have one set of holes... So, the single set of holes will work with old and new 2 and 4 cavity? I really need at least one more set.

    Matt, they will work on any of your 2 or 4 cav moulds and if you ever get an 8 cav mould the handles you have will work also.

    Great! I appreciate the feedback. Next silly question... anyone else make handles that will work? 50 bux for a set of handles seems silly.

    KAL tool & Die (a vendor sponsor here) makes some nice high quality handles.

    ALSO, I have modified Lee 6 cav handles for Saeco molds.

    Lee 6 cavity handles $14.99 from Midway , in stock ... I always buy a set or two when ordering from midway , just about all my moulds have their own handles that stay attached....
    Love Lee 6 cavity handles... $50.00 is a bit steep for my budget too .

    Lyman and NOE moulds fit as is...not sure about Saeco...may have to make adjustments ... but for $15.00 you can adjust and still save.

    Or you can get the same handles for $12.49 at Natchez. I also usually buy a couple extra handles with each order.
