(Model A) That's not a bad idea.. but I just bought a huge batch of parts and can't think of anything else.
A skull shift knob isn't a bad idea, though.
I just recently bought a 100 year old line shaft lathe. The only thing broken on it is an edge of one knob for the cross feed. I was thinking of casting a new one, but I figured I could just machine one out of scrap I have laying around the shop.
That's the dilema. I couldn't think of anything (small) that would be cool to cast, and not easy enough to just machine up in an hour.
