    Did you get the entire handle assembly or just the knob? I was checking into this issue last week. I have the power handle on my HXW and I like the regular HX handle better. I was told that the power handle has a bigger diameter shaft than the regular handle and they won't interchange. You have to replace the entire handle assembly including the arm and the knob. If you just have the power handle I don't think it will work. If you have the entire handle assembly it should be easy to switch.

    I called avet but she seemed confused so I just said thanks. I only have the power knob and the little 2" aluminum piece where the bearings go inside. The actual arm seems to be the same, I need everything that goes inside that aluminum piece.

    I ordered the handle and knob from Squidco. Joey knew exactly what I was asking for. Took about a week or two to get but installed it with no problem.
