    Wink SHIFT KNOBS - Custom, Hand-Made

    Hey guys,
    I'm a new vendor here, but I've been manufacturing shift knobs since 2006. I use a precision lathe from 1976 which is fully manual. I don't use any CNC automation or software. I make every part from scratch by hand, after the order is placed. I also work alone. I have no employees and very few distributors (none in the ST market). This lets me handle each order myself so I make sure that customization is done correctly and nothing goes out the door unless it is perfect.

    I have a good standing in the Subaru world so I'm hoping to expand into the ST market this year. With luck, you guys will help me reach my goal of quitting my day job and making car parts full time.

    Here are some pics of ST knobs. They do not cover the full range I can offer or the options that are available. A lot of the custom features haven't been done for the ST yet so you can be the first one to get a unique shifter.

    These knobs are all 100% compatible with the stock ST shifter. They do not require any modification to the car.

    "Made-In-America" still means something

    Also, another thing I do is make hand-made Titanium wedding rings. They are cut from a solid rod of pure grade 2 titanium.

    and I can also make wooden knobs (technically my brother does the wood portion, I do the metal bottom end or metal insert)
