Translucent knobs...
« on: August 05, 2015, 12:55:19 AM »
I need 10 of these bad boys. Anyone know of any suppliers? The 'line' needs to illuminate as it mates with the panel it is attached to.

Great. Curious to hear if they will sell in small quantities...

Notice they have distributors, but it seems that most of them only hold a limited range.

Cheers,
Karl

Welp.. found a local distributor and it wasn't pretty. For any of their translucent knob products, the starting price was around $30.

I can't see spending $300 for 10 knobs.

Hello Ray,

If you are looking for ready made knobs you can also try this website from Sweden.
http://www.knobs.se

I just saw that he currently does not take orders but he seems to deliver really nice quality translucent knobs.

HTH,
Marc

 I have that mold as long as it is the knob I think it is. I was doing this a few years ago. Most of the knobs I made still look pretty good. Text me and I will show you.
