Custom made steel weighted shift knobs!!

All right guys, after what seemed like a long time of going back and forth with Tom and a few other moderators, I am now ready to offer my product to the community!! Here's the info on the shift knobs I make guys.
  • 2" Diameter sphere shaped (comparable to Blox and TWM)
  • Machined from 1018 Carbon Steel
  • Natural weight of 518g after drilling/tapping. No added weight!
  • Drilled 1.5" for countersunk applications and a low sitting knob!
  • Tapped to 12x1.25 thread (all manual focus thread pitch)
  • Can be drilled to retain Duratec and ST reverse lock out!

As of right now guys, I am offering three different color choices: 5 semi-gloss black, 5 gloss white, and 5 matte silver. These will be powder coated for as neutral as possible temperatures. Eventually, I will offer these with hand stitched leather as an additional option! I am taking pre-orders for a total of 15 knobs in the colors listed above. Now I do want to let everyone know; This is just a hobby of mine. I'm just another member who's working on a bench lathe in their garage. I do work a full time job, so it does take me a little extra time to get these done but I do promise you guys I will be working on these every day after work!

Here are a few pictures so everyone can get a good idea of how the process works and the final product! (sorry guys, most are cell phone pics)

is this something that has to be a group buy?? i have a 2006 ST ive been looking for a weighted shift knob for a few weeks now and this is honestly the best i have come by! all the other ones ive found have the allen screws in the bottom of the shifter which is a PITA in my opinion. looking to get the painted black one to match my car. please let me know if this is something that you are still manufacturing because i definately want to order one from you
