Turning the Knob

September 21, 2004

I needed a knob to attach to the encoder, so decided to turn one on my Sherline metal lathe. I machined it out of 2" diameter aluminum, with a small flange at the bottom, and a set screw to hold it in place. The cutting tool left a nice finish, so I decided not to polish it. I'm a little afraid that it's too large, and will therefore seem a little tacky stuck onto the front along with the LCD, but we'll see how it goes.
