Question about Plumbing

The handle on the Ideal Standard single faucet in our kitchen fell out.

We had an Ideal Standard single faucet in our kitchen. Its handle fell out. The handle is the one that we push toward right or left to open or close tap water. It was installed on a round cover connected to valve of faucet at side. We tried to screw it back in but the screw thread of the hole on the cover seemed to be too worn to let the handle stay in. Is there any way to fix this apart from replacing the whole faucet? Or is there any place in Auckland, New Zealand where we can buy spare parts? Thanks. David.

All sorts of things come to mind. Get on your computer and track the company and see if they offer replacement parts or an upgrade. Looks like you'll need to drill the hole and retap the threads. OR go down to a Michael's if you have one or any place that would sell wooden dowels. Find one that is a tad larger and whittle it to fit the hole. Use teak or something strong. It won't look stock but if you do it nicely you can stain the wood and make it look good, spray some clear on it to make it water-proof. You can also try running a tap through the threads to see if the threads can be repaired. Long shot but if you are on GREAT terms with the Powers, a small miracle would be nice ... but it CAN HAPPEN> I have run taps through some beaten threads and they have come back to life. The last option would be to have a machine shop make another steel dowel but thread it for the next size up and drill and tap the hole to match.
