UPDATE (09/01/17) I have ran out of these ‘beta’ knobs, seems there is a real need for a better knob on the KX2! I am working on getting a mold made for the new knob, I will post the updates here as I make progress on this new part. Thanks for the interest and feedback as we bring another product to life.
I like many of you see the need for a better VFO A Knob. This beta 3D printed VFO A knob has a traditional finger dimple as well as a new ‘pimple’ (sounds bad but wait till you try it!) in addition, it has a better ring of corrugations for traction to spin the knob. The knob is just .110″ taller than the factory knob and the same width as the factory knob (as measured at it’s base)
This is a BETA knob to test drive, should there be enough interest in this product I will move forward with the project and do one of two versions:
The first may be an injection molded plastic part with a finish much like the current factory knob. The mold is expensive as usual, so there will have to be sufficient interest to move forward. This version could have a rubber molded tire rather than all one piece of plastic.
The alternative is to make an Aluminum body and add the rubber tire around the outside of it. This will be a more costly product, but I can do it in short runs, with out the expense of a mold.
Please come back to this page and post a review of this part! You can post reviews for any of my products on their respective page!
