My first read was a quick skimming for visuals, so I'll add some more pics:
I purchase a couple of these chipping hammers from Harbor Freight. Cut off the hammer, and took a propane torch to heat and bend.
I found that a 3/8" die works perfectly for this diameter.
Cut down about an inch.
A nut and washer on both sides of the lid and you have a handle.
Ain't she ugly?
