Cast Resin Vintage Volume/Tone Knobs

TK Smith Volume/Tone Knobs

We recently started making our own cream RCA style volume/tone knobs. They’re cast reproductions of the knobs used on some of my favorite vintage guitars of the 40s and 50s.  Similar to the knobs used on Merle’s 1948 solid body electric built by PA Bigsby, they look great on any electric instrument. They measure 1″ by 9/16″ tall and fit a 1/4″ shaft with a slotted set screw. Up in the store now.

Then we decided to go ahead and make Stratosphere style knobs as well, similar to the ones on Stratosphere guitars of the 1950’s. They measure 1 1/16″ by 1/16″ tall and fit a 1/4″ shaft with a slotted screw. You can see them here.

Both styles are sold as a set of two or four knobs. Free shipping in the USA. If not in the USA and want to order, contact us directly so we can work out the best shipping price for you.

Atlas / Craftsman 6″ Metal Lathe

TK Smith, Atlas/Craftsman Lathe

Last week a friend brought me this really clean Craftsman model makers lathe. It belonged to his father who bought it new. For years I’ve been wanting one of these for small jobs.
