Maven I've got friends overseas that if I give them an original knob in Bakelite they can send me back a new one exactly the same they are that good. that the maker said to me if you can pick the difference - then dont pay me !

This is in Europe and they will do original Bakelite or Plastic! Made as we made then 55 years ago or more.

Only 1 catch 2 actually we must send him a top order original and unless we want a minimum of 100 of that type of knob, 100 in that colour --------- he won't do it !

So ok tell me example original knobs from a AWA 500M how many people would like new knobs be they green ( and matched ) brown or cream ?

Anything you want I can get done in knobs so long as you guys can consume 100 of them , its not dear / its not cheap -------------its in the middle .
If people want 100 made of a type & prepared to pay - just give me a yell you could use 5 I dare say clubs could distribute the rest - but they are not free you know.
