Default aliexpress 'vintage' bits

I mentioned getting bits and bobs from Aliexpress in another thread, here are a couple of purchases which might be of interest. There's some gold speaker cloth, very similar to the sort philips used in the mid 50's, and a bakelite knob which might suit those radios too unworthy of anything more expensive!

The grille cloth at 1.5m x 0.5m was £1.50 or so.
The 40mm knobs were around 19p each (real bakelite with brass inserts) plus carriage of choice.

Two grub screws for good grip, too- at least they're trying!

That cloth isn't bad looking, and is very cheap compared to what you;d pay in UK.
