I'm not a beer drinker but I had to have this for my flathead powered Sport coupe.
you wana check out Chromerat's stuff....very very cool..I have a couple of real early numberd ones!!
My newest Frank knob on the far right.
Olegs Trosman's carved knobs are really cool
Ya, I saw you had one in your collection there. I saw that one on e bay quite a while back. I commissioned him to do this one. He asked why when I carve my own. I said not as good as yours. His detail is amazing.
What else you have there in that collection?
Looks like you have some cool stuff there.
Not The Coolest But Still Cool
Mine's from a 60's table centerpiece. A hunk of driftwood with these balls and some plastic leaves stapled to it.
here is my shifter......
My wife whenever she sits next to me
I do it's my tp dispenser
Who carved that one?
Looks like one from the (house of skulls)
Dare I ask it,s original purpose?
You win! I would LOVE to have a Norm piece. That is prob the best one I have see to date! Congrats!
yes, it is a House of Skulls
Turned these knobs on my small lathe, I was too cheap to by a 4 speed shifter so i made this setup, theres 2 gears on each stick then the smaller stick is reverse.
Here are a some tikki shifters i carved a while back for another project
That shifter setup is pretty cool. Keep some numbnuts from driving it.
That is about the coolest wooden knob I've ever seen.
there's a hamb member and good friend of mine, coopercustoms, he makes some badass knobs out of clear epoxy. Put whatever you can dream up inside it. You name it he's done it from bugs, eyeballs, even a pig testicle. I'll bug him to post some pics on this thread. He also does motorcycle grips with the epoxy end.
Mine is off a Vincent Black Shadow..worlds Record holder Steve Hamels Vincent...Bevel Gear and The Vincent Valve cover machined to be a shift. Steve gave it to a friend of mine and he passed it on to me..unusal to say the least and cool as hell!!
Cool thread!I ran across this thread while doing a search for a wooden auto shift knob with a button..... In cherry.You guys with manual transmission have it easy!!!!!It fits the stock auto shifter (converted to 4 spd OD) and there's is no exposed hardware. The button functions exactly the same as the stock piece.I know it's not a "jalopy" but it's one of the recent custom touches I've added to the car in all years I've had it.
i have some from ChrmedRAT here on the HAMB
OK here's mine. I know this has been done to death but.... A 1922 Duesenberg Indy car piston. The year they won the Indy 500 and went bankrupt
Another NormSkull for you:
Heres mine made it my self...............
I make these, and if your really nice to me I'll make you one with a pig nut in it.
