Default Big Knobs group buy?

So how many of you have dreamed of owning big knobs


Is anyone interested in a 2.5" version of the pictured knobs?

They would be $6.50 ea if we could get 250 of them

At $6.50, I'd be interested in 4. Saves me trying to get my machinist to actually do it.

What are those rings around? Are those grooves or rubber? Is it solid aluminum?

Peter,

You didn't know that those are "soft touch" rings
They are rubber, but I'm sure that we could eliminate them.

Kilo International


They have other models. I just wanted to get a target price.

If you are willing to pay $6.50 each US? I can get them custom made (all 250 the same) for less than that!

I know how good quality knobs look. It is quite tricky to make them, unless a place specializes in such work. You know that, of course?

I won't dignify that remark with a response.
