I could Anodize them. Considering the price of off the shelf knobs, I could do a matching set for $125. Ano would be a bit more, depending on the number of knobs I did. Its usually a $100 lot charge, so If I only made a couple, it would tack on a good amount.

I would definetely take some knobs. I would LOVE ludicrous speed for 5th. If you are able to get an order together, let me know. I'll order some other knobs too, but they may need to be different shaped, if that is possible. We can discuss via PM probably.

I can make knobs at anytime, just pm me. The only time a special order needs to be made is when I have to outsource for Ano. This one is made of aluminum. I can make them in stainless, plastic, brass, wood. Whatever. Aluminum is widely available to me so I really prefer it.

This is very cool! It will be some time before I need a 5-spd knob however.

Can you make more complex objects in aluminum or stainless?

Yes, to a certain extent. Most work I do is on a manual mill and lathe, so complex radii and geometry is tough. Better to just draw something up on a napkin and ask if I think its possible.

I would be interested in a set depending on the ano price. I guess if 5-6 people would want to ano that would be great. Would they all need to be the same color?
