Default Re: Making replica wooden knobs on a lathe

Nicely done David, a dentist friend of mine used to make copies of knobs with plaster of Paris and cast replacements in what he called "Dental Acrylic" (Norwegian = Tannlegeakryl).
Cannot ask him these days because he died nearly ten years ago now, but I do have one or two of his repair jobs and attempts at creating CRT bases for WWII German radar equipment tubes. I think that it is a question of experimenting more than anything, the alternative would be what?
