Italian term or phrase: chiave manovella
The translation is about a welding positioner. They are talking about adjusting the inclination of the rotating table:

"Per effettuare l’inclinazione occorre ruotare l’apposita **chiave manovella** posta vicino al mandrino"

Can I just call this a "crank"?

Thanks for any help!
