I am interested in the techniques used by O scale modelers to make door handles. I've used wood and wire but am not satisfied with the results. Of particular interest are handles for screen doors, barn doors, etc.

One of my tricks is to use a staple. I will bend the staple if needed. I usually cut off one leg of the staple prior to bending the new leg to create the handle length I want.

I usually use the head of a small brass nail.

Like Brucet said about using pins, you can also use the round head of a sewing pin as a house/entryway door knob.
Here is what I was saying about using solder.
Take a piece of styrene and a piece of solder and make up a barn door handle.

Raid the wife's sewing basket and nick a few sewing pins. Nip the heads off and use them as door handles.

I have used track spikes for lever handles and Peco track pins for knobs.

For this 'O' Scale structure, the guy used solder formed into a handle.
