floor jack

ok guys...need me some help, with some design ideas and a solution to fix my floor jack..seems the gear bolt (#6 in diagram) has rounded off and the handle (#3 in diagram) will not engage the bolt to turn the gear to open or close the hydraulic. To top it off, the gear bolt part is NO LONGER AVAILABLE!

So, my idea is to cut a groove thru the top of the bolt head and then to weld in the handle a "key" or a piece of rod that would fit into the grove of the bolt..anyone got a better idea? Also, will need someone to weld for me..
