Thanks, but I can make 'em quicker than three shakes of a lambs tail. The shipping would be more than the product. I was just curious if they were 1/4" rod of something smaller.

The rod handle design is made from 1/4" rod. We used this design about 15yrs ago but ran into a few problems. When you ship UPS, you can no longer stack buckets inside one another. Also if you can't get to the stove soon enough, the handles get covered with ash. This tends to make a mess when pulling out the bucket. If it works for you that's great. I like the handles but they didn't work well in production.

If you made the handel to pivot in the middle of the pan the handel will lay flat on the top edge of the pan no ash build up
on handels and add a little pull handel on the end of pan to help pull the pan out then use the top handel to carry the pan
this is how the Gibraltar pans are very easy to carry and no ash build up /mess on the handel Hitzer's are similar
also at the pivot point make a stop tab so the handel can only swing so far stops in the middel of pan
