    As usual, McMaster-Carr has some under "Machine Handle Cranks". See pages 2179 and 2180.
    Any products mentioned in my posts have been endorsed by their manufacturer.

          theres some of these out there where shops convert manual machines to cnc so they ussally replace the handles with the safer style so both the screws and handles are really cheap try David Olsen Company we bought a whole horde of screws and replaced the bridgeport screws with them and have a bunch of cranks laying around now

            I like Reid, the outfit SGW linked to, for that sort of thing. They have a much bigger selection than anyone else I've found.

              With the up and over version, it's relatively easy to turn "3 Ball" handles.

                Not what you asked for but in the same category. I just got one of these for $7.95. Chrome cast iron 5" handwheel. I like it. Search for "handwheel and "hand wheel" both at Grizzly to find all.

                Is a "safety" wheel one that the crank stays spring-loaded in?

                Third, on my Lagun mill the ball cranks has some disks behind them with internal splines, external splines and other junk but have been retrofit solid. Anybody explain this?

                  Safety one looks to replace normal sticky out one, like a fold away kickstart.
