Knobsoup stuff

Recommended Posts

Keith here. Most of you know me as the guy that makes Lincoln Zephyr interior plastic items. That’s true, however not only do I make knobs I also make other stuff for other makes of cars or projects that challenge or inspire me.


Case in point.


For some time now I’ve wanted to make a mold of a gearshift knob and be able to suspend objects in the clear resin. But what could I suspend in it?


Then I reached back into my teenage brain.


In my feckless and callow youth my friends and I would make fake coins using aluminum foil and a dime or quarter. We would carefully cut them out and place them on the floor in the halls of the my Junior High and wait till someone thought they found a dime, stoop over the pick it up and crumple the fake coin. Great fun. 


The clear resin in the dome acts as a magnifying lens so any object encased appears larger in size.


From time to time I’ll post other things I’m working on. Perhaps you may find them interesting.
