Recreating knobs
« on: October 27, 2017, 11:01:50 PM »
I ordered 25 NOS bakelite knobs from Russia. Haven't seen anything exactly like them in terms of dimensions and shape. Any ideas as where to get these replicated? Davies-Molding? Anywhere else in the US?

What type of price should I expect to pay?

3D printers are getting cheaper, but probably some old surplus around.

Bakelite is really expensive to start up,  only really useable for parts where you can expect to produce a never-ending continous flow. Something with molds and oxidation and such.
