What goes into the manufacture of a Custom Redback Gear Knob?

Custom Redback Gear Knobs are made from a High Quality Jewellery Polyester Resin, meaning they are very hard and polish to a very high reflectance. Each knob has a 16mmx1.5 Brass Thread Master embedded during manufacture. This master can then have a range of thread reducers inserted to suit many different applications from cars, boats, machinery, aeroplanes etc, just about anywhere a knob is used. 

Embedding The Australian Redback Spider successfully has proven to be a difficult task, accomplished properly by very few people. The fragile body of the spider creates many difficulties. The spiders body is highly elastic enabling it to consume a very large meal and swell considerably in size overnight. This elasticity means every step of the preservation process must meet certain specific requirements. 

The spiders colour, especially the red stripe is a living pigment and dies along with the spider. As a result of this each spider is inked with a high quality enamel based ink to preserve its colour. The red stripe is added by hand using a high quality paint. This technique ensures your Custom Redback Gear Knob will keep fantastic colour for a very long time.

At Custom Redback we use a large range of pigments to colour the polyester resin, these pigments are available as solid colours or pearl. We also now have a range of metallic fleck additives, the same kind as used to finish show cars.

 

When you receive a Custom Redback Gear Knob you can be rest assured you now own a High Quality Unique piece of work that was hand made with great precision and care. - Direct from South Australia, Home of the Dangerous Australian Redback Spider.

A Customer Order with Gear Knob shown installed - All Pearl White

 

 

Comment from above customer:

Hi Mark,
 
My Custom Gear Knob arrived today and looks fantastic, the colours work really well with the cars interior (It lights up red).

It was also a doddle to fit as the collar slid underneath the leather booth. It's been a pleasure to do business with you and I will pass your details on if anyone shows an interest.

 

 

 
 
Choosing Colours for your Custom Redback knob.

Custom knobs can be either all one colour, or a base colour (see pic, colour 1), with a top thin layer (see pic, colour 2). The thin colour layer allows you to choose a main base colour you prefer for your cars interior, while setting the spider against a background you prefer to either make it stand out or hide it. Spiders generally have brown to black abdomens, with black legs and thorax. If you want the spider to stand out it pays to go for brighter colours, such as yellow, white, red etc. Dark colours such as black, blue, purple etc tend to camouflage the spider.

Complex blends can be created as bleeds between colours, these will vary as little control is available which makes each knob unique. Colour matching is not possible, however I do have a good range of colours in stock.

 

Choosing the correct thread for your Custom Redback knob.

The best way to find the correct thread is to either buy some nuts from your local hardware to find which one fits onto your gear stick or take your existing knob into a hardware and find a bolt that will easily screw into it. Generally speaking most modern cars will be metric, either 10Mx1.25, or 12Mx1.25. Older Australian cars and American cars might be AF or UNF/UNC, not metric, so look for sizes around 3/8", 5/16" or 1/2". You need to find the correct size thread so your custom knob will thread on easily.

All knobs are now supplied with a brass thread reducer. Our maximum size by brass thread reducer is 12.5mm, if you require a larger thread we will need to make an adapter which will be constructed from high grade aluinium.
