That's not a bad design. Can you do knurling on the Acetal Copolymer?

Not really, the material has to be extremely rigid so when the knurling tool pushes on it, it remains straight. There is alot of force to push the knurling wheels into the material and the plastic will simply bend under the pressure.
What are you looking for?

I guess I assumed they were cut in, rather than pressed in. oops. I'm just looking for some surface texture on an Acetal knob, I'm worried about getting sweaty hands and slipping off. And I've always liked the look of the knurling.


A quick trip to wikipedia says they used to use knurling to expand the size of worn piston skirts. Now that's impressive. /threadjack.

Hey, I installed the knob today. Its great, feels really good. Its a little smaller than stock which is perfect, and the grooves give a lot of grip. The fact that its threaded and not screw held makes it so much better than the standard momo knobs I've felt. I snapped a quick pic this morning.

Oh, Also I have a design for a shift lever extension made from 6061 Aluminum. It is 1" in diameter, and raises the knob height by approximately 2"
It screws directly onto the lever and is adaptable for pretty much any shift knob that has a hole deeper than the 1.5" tall threaded shaft.

Here are pics with a custom-made sphere shift knob made to blend smoothly with the extension.





This is a special order item which will be made for a customer who is definite about a purchase. It can be made with an aluminum or copolymer knob to fit directly with it as well. Its all up to you.

That is easily possible. My customer for that piece chose not to have it on, but it won't be much more trouble to incorporate the lip into the design.

Yes I can make a lip on the bottom of the extension, no problem.
Yes I can also make a copolymer sphere knob like the one pictured above which I'll make to fit together with the same outer dimension for a good professional appearance.
The extension must be made from Aluminum to have enough strength for this application, therefore it will be silver. You could have it anodized in black though if you have a local shop, they may be able to toss it in a batch for a small price.

yeah, I like how the boot kinda droops there.

It does rule though. I kinda wish I held out for the thicker ball knob at this point.

Any Acetyl Copolymer Piston Style Shift knobs for the 6spd?

Can you engrave anything on the knobs? Just wondering. It would be cool if it had the shift patters on the top or something...

Yes, I can make the copolymer piston for the STi, I just haven't had time to make one because of other orders.
Engraving is not possible at the current time, I'd have to use a CNC machine to properly do that, and they cost a bit more than I can afford
