Custom gear knob

Post by Buckley06 » Sat Mar 24, 2018 6:50 pm

Looking to make some custom gear knobs.
I will work out a price for them depending on the interest.
I can engrave anything on the top.
I.E user name, Z4 ECT ECT.
They will be out of stainless steel.

(Sorry for the late message could you let me know what speed you require)

List of people that have already taken one.

I think you'll get interest for the storm-motorwerks style if you go for short and heavy.

I have a 3D model but it is at work at the moment.
I will upload the picture on Monday.
I was hoping for people input for it as I'm not going to be making loads like 10 or 15 max.
I was thinking about stainless steel instead of aluminium but it would cost like 5 time more :( .

I am not going to be making money from this So the gear knobs will be sold at cost my time will be free :D .

Just thought it would be cool if people had their own custom gear knob.

Any other input would be great cheers guys.
Please check out my potential next project.

I too would be interested in a storm-motorwerks style small and dumpy style. I am not so fussed on engraving other than the gears selection.

Jut my 2ps worth. :)

Some nice ones for the auto would be fantastic too, theres really not much choice out there for us auto owners and could be a money maker for you...

Hi, I'm interested. Are they CNC turned or milled? I mean will it be cylindrical in shape like this:

or will it be non-uniform like the OEM one like this:?

What about finishes? Do you have access to anodisers?

I will turn them. I'm thinking stainless steel as weighted seems to be what people want. So you can only anodize ally.
Does the auto gear knob fit like a manual one I would need to see one.

Here is a draft model so far.
Most things can be changed, Like taking the 6 away.

I can get 12 knobs out of 1 meter of material.
Working it out based on that model would be around £32 with out postage.
Please inbox me if you want one as soon as all 11 are gone (one for me) I will make a start on them.


I don't need any money up front you can pay when you receive it :D
