Does anyone know the part number or can a socket with a extension be used. If i can use a socket is it 5/8?.

Thx

Our electric slide has a roll pin through the shaft that the manual crank goes over so it's not a socket. In our last unit it had a hex head that was 3/4" so a 3/4" socket fit it fine. I just had a couple of long extensions in order to reach it.

When you post the pics try to get one of the end where the manual crank goes.

I looked at the link above. That socket is for a 1/4 drive. That will work you to death if it even holds up. I do hope it works.

That socket fit my manual rods by widening the slot slightly with a cut-off disc.
I tried it with a cordless drill instead of a 1/4" ratchet.
It moved the slide(s) just fine.

Our slide operator looks like that. I got a couple of long hex drive extensions and use them with a cordless drill like 5picker and it works fine.

I still have the old crooked handle too, but hope I never have to use it to operate the slide.

You'd be surprised at the uses you find for it once you have one.
