This is my first intructables, so please forgive any mistake and hope you like it! (Love your web page!!!)
Few weekends ago I was trying to find on the net some knobs to put on a old JVC amplifier my and my girlfriend found on the street... God I love London...
The small ones (2.5cm) where reasonable cheap and easy to find but I couldn't find any of 5cm...
So at last I decided to do them myself.
So here it comes:
Step 1: The knobs
2nd: When I had the knobs cut I filled the little holes with filler i did myself using some wood dust from my sander and wood glue. Mix half and half (a bit less of glue) and apply.
3rd: Make some holes in the middle, use a ruler to do this. Use a drill bit about 5mm
4rd: Once is dry (allow a day) sand it. Cut a hexagonal metric screw and itroduce it on the hole so you can use it with the driller as shown on picture 06. I stapled some sanding paper (120 to start) to a peace of wood and I put some clothes in between to not be so scuare.
5th: I sanded with 600 sanding paper by hand to finish it.
