Machined on a lathe, handwork Cool
Made a negative template from cardbord to help.

Well, nothing against these 7 chilly Michigan winters I lived through Laughing
Bought my Ghia there and brought it "home".

Cheers

Good job sir!

Do you lock it with a set screw?

Damn...I'd ask you to make me one but shipping from Germany would probably be crazy.

I'll try a nice piece of wood.

Thanks!!! Shipping may be less of an issue then me not having access to a lathe at the moment. Hoping to change that within a couple of month... Very Happy

Yep, just like the T-Handle that came with the shifter, the release button needed some shortening to not stick out too far. If you are interested I'll shoot some pics from the other side on the WE.

Cheers

Very Happy post away, you never know who is watching for ideas. I tend to forget I have access to machine shops at times, maybe I can hop on the lathe. it would be neat to have one made out of brass.
