    When my car burned down, I got going on a light bulb knob style that I had been asked to do multiple times but was difficult to make. Well I ended up not needing the funds as fast as I had intended so they got put on the back burner.

    Now they are done up and ready to ship. I made 10 to sell, and like I said they are a fair bit of work, so unless there is a LOT of interest in more, this will probably be the only run of these.

    I forgot to take a picture of them in car, but here is what they look like. They are stainless steel and weight approx 550g. Really a comfortable shape.

    Price is $75 shipped to anywhere in the US.

    I wanted one of your knobs for a while how heavy is this guy over stock. Can stainless steel be anodized?

    Stock I think is 250g, and this one is about 550g so just over double stock weight. It would be noticeable without being too heavy.

    I think stainless can be anodized, but I have zero means to do something like that.

    Ooooo I will definitely be taking one when I get paid... My CS one isn't heavy enough for me. Hold one until the 5th-6th for a fellow Michigander? :p

    Hey man, you're a hot commodity. I need to break my Maisonvi virginity, and this seems like a great way to do it.

    Heh skeletor head. Those teeth would leave a mark. Can i get a thunder cats pose on mine?

    The thing i like about this is there is a collar made of the same material after the ball so my palm dosent have to rest/rub the boot. And i never like the "lever" style knobs i always ended up spining them on a spirited shift.

    I also love the fact that i can support a mazdaspeeder with the purchase

    A skeletor knob is beyond what I can turn on my lathe. Maybe a 3d printer

    Got my knob and i am a happy camper. Super smooth finish and nothing feels better then balls in my hand. The shift knob is nice to...

    My favorite part is the collar under the ball. It keeps my fingers from hitting the boot during a shift. That is the reason i never got a ball knob.

    My shifts are already faster since that shit gets hot in the sun and i dont want to shift slow and burn my hand!!

    If you didnt buy one yet stop fucking around and pull the trigger.
