    I'm going to reiterate my note above, if you're not getting an error code, you probably have a switch problem. I suggest you call Robust and see if they can help you trouble shoot it.

    Just to reiterate my response above, Robust got the owner's permission before passing on their contact info. I thought they were very respectful of that person.

    That's interesting that Oneway couldn't find you an owner near by. When I bought my Robust they were able to find somebody about an hour away. After they got that person's permission to release...

    You probably can't buy just the handle, you'll need to buy the whole thing. McMaster Carr, as suggested above, will have high quality ones. Probably $10-14.
