These knobs.
(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm3.staticflickr.com-1435-1329613649.1.jpg)

Looks like the last time I opened the group buy was spring of 2014

Details:
Cost will be $75, which includes shipping in the CONUS. If you live outside the CONUS we will work something out.

I'll probably end up making 20-30 knobs and that may be it for a few years.

Knobs are about 50mm in diameter. They all all 100% hand made, by me, here in York PA.

Here is how it works.
  • If you want one, post up. I'll add your name to this post. If your name isn't in this post, you won't be on my queue. Feel free to bug me if you don't see it.
  • What shifter is it going on?
  • How many do you want?
  • Send me a PM with your email address, home address, etc. I'll respond with my paypal address.
  • I ONLY ACCEPT PAYPAL! Seriously, no checks.
Finish will be tung oil and wax, as in years past. I no longer offer the acrylic finish as it had cracking issues for some members in very cold climates. The oil and wax takes longer, but its a bullet proof finish.

The knobs are very light weight, and attach to your car with the standard crush ring. If you have a threaded shifter lever, I can do a spin on if you tell me.

I make each knob to order, and your name on the list is the order I make them. I try to turn them around as quick as I can, but each one takes a solid weekend to do, from the first turns on the lathe to the last buff on the buffing wheel.
UPDATE 9/8/17 - Enough interest shown to order materials, so today I ordered materials. Should be able to start making the blanks in about 10 days.
UPDATE 9/10/17 - the first run will be 18 knobs. If more people want in I'll add you to the wait list. If enough people warrent a second run this fall, I'll make it. Likewise, if people move out of the first run for some reason, the wait list will move in and take their slot.

These feel beautiful in hand, and don't get hot- I already have one but it's mainly lighter in color.

I'd like one that looks like your picture for a Rennshifter please.

up to 18 requests. This is going to be the first run.
Still looking for PMs from a few of you.

If more people want in I'll add you to the wait list. If enough people warrent a second run this fall, I'll make it.
Likewise, if people move out of the first run for some reason, the wait list will move in and take their slot.
