HEY KLAUS!

Hey Klaus, check these out from the Eastwood company.

Aren't these just what we've been looking for on this shifter knob project?

Let me know.

Thanks for the thought, Martin, but...

no, not really. 1.) Too short 2.) Too expensive 3.)Available in our needed threading??? 4.) The insert is no longer the issue...
The issue(s) for some time now have been as follows:
1.) Investment $$$ on my part--or committed buyers--for custom tooling specific to production.
2.) My needing to focus on other work with a 'guaranteed' monthly $$$ flow/return.
3.) My desire to find a cold-worked alternative to hot-forming the hole for the insert. Can you locate me a top-notch company that can reliably and efficiently put a 'blind' 1/2" to 5/8" diameter, approximately 1 1/2" deep hole in otherwise solid borosilicate glass, without damaging the surrounding glass in any way? This would enable all manner of fun...
I'm aware of diamond core drilling... but this requires the 'chipping out' of the drilled core. Not an option. Water-jet cutting would have to go all the way through... also not an option...
Anything's possible--it just takes time and money. I have had to focus on other things... much as I would love to have 'finished' this 'great idea' by now. Thanks for thinking of us, though! Perhaps there are yet ways... but it does come down to effeciency, and cost, vs what folks are reasonably willing to pony up, $$$-wise. I can't gamble on credit that it'll pay off... I could easily invest a few grand in getting it all happening... Sure would be nice!

Well poop. Sorry. FWIW, I know where you're coming from. Things are just about as hectic for me for roughly the same reasons. Which explains why I can't keep up with the shifter knob project :p
