I make a lot of different type of jigs fixtures and machinery and for me making my knobs for my machines is part of the process. I know you can buy them but they are so easy, quick and cheap that this is what I use. And you can easily custom make them to fit your needs.

I posted a quick video on how I make them to give you an idea how easy they are.

Better than what I was doing, and it uses so much less epoxy! Now if you could dream up a brilliant idea on how to make brass knurled knobs just as easily, that’d be great!

In all seriousness, this is a great idea to save the woodworking dollars.
