At some point I somehow managed to break my crank puller. The round head that pushes against the axle has come off.

Can I get a replacement handle / fix it myself or do I just need to buy a new tool?

    I doubt that replacement parts are available. A machinist might be able to drill holes to allow the cap to be screwed on, but the effort is probably not worth it. – Daniel R Hicks Apr 30 at 17:23

    Park offer a limited lifetime warranty and I assume this would constitute a defect, but also counts on having the proof of purchase... and who keeps those amirite!? – Swifty Apr 30 at 18:15
  • Given they seem to be about $15 US at various online US retailers, the cost to repair is probably more than just buying a new one. – Andrew Henle Apr 30 at 21:11
  • Did it break during normal usage as a crank puller? Or were you using it for something else outside the design intent? – Criggie May 1 at 1:03
  • no criggie. I swear I respect my bike tools! I can't say the some for the general tools though. I must of dropped it at some point or something. – Ageis May 1 at 9:49

I would contact Park Tool's customer service and inquire about warranty replacement. Their hand tools have a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects to the original purchaser.

I suggest this could be a good excuse to buy a new bike with two piece cranks, so you that you won’t need that crank puller.
