That’s a beast Don. Love it! Where did you get the knobs or did you make them?

Andy, I bought some blank knobs and filled them, so I sort of made them, but sort of didn’t.

Nice. Kind of has a timeless/classic look to it. I like it.

In case anyone couldn’t tell, it is a GREAT gauge. I have used it a dozen or so times already. THANKS DON!

The brass knobs with wood inserts is definitely an eye candy. I didn’t know such brass parts were available. Thanks for sharing the info, DonW
