Aluminum Replacement Knobs for My Drill Press
I enjoy re-building equipment that needs a little TLC, and my drill-press handle knobs needed to be replaced because all 3 had cracked and did not hold on the handle threads anymore.
Could have purchased some new Knobs and quickly replaced them ... but much more fun to Cast some out of Aluminum.
No special reason for the unusual shape ... Just wanted something different
Ground & buffed them off just enough to get rid of the sharp edges ...
Then tapped the knobs with metric M10 x 1.5 Thread to match drill-press handles.

Once Again ... Nothing Fancy but works for what I need.
