    Okay now that I can post again. This is how I made the knobs. I laminated clear red and white plastic with thick super glue. Let it dry over night. I then cut a strip from that I then filed one end to a rough shape of what I wanted. then I sanded it with 400 and 800 grit sand paper to the final shape. Then I cut it off the end and drilled a hole it it to accept the wire. Then I dipped it in clear lacquer paint. Steve Boutte shows how he does this on his webste and he just did an article in the other mag talking about it as well
