    Looking at the wiring diagram for a 904 rev B/C, there are several M codes broke out:

    M60/61 - M68/69 plus a "SPARE-2".

    Putting a relay on the e-stop circuit/chain sounds like a good idea to me.

    If you want to do an air cylinder, use a chain or cable attached to the cylinder, so once the switch is over-center it...

    2004 Is just before they switched over to the LCD displays with the windowed "vintage" display IIRC. That was 16 years ago! I'm gonna say that the power supply for the computer is probably crapping...

    If you look closely, the replacement handle has layer lines. Looks to me like they either used a 3D printed pattern or used the lost-PLA method to casting. The 3D print was not very smooth, thus...

    A dab of the ole high carbon hot-glue ought to keep those things going the way you want, no matter if it's forwards or backwards.
