I needed some help on a special request for a knurled shoulder screw for a brass bell AUO and this is what Lucas cooked up. Hope the pic shows it good 'cause it's just AWESOME Thanks Lucas! makes it much more user friendly to swap around to adjust osc sweep.... very nice indeed.

Here's a factory shoulder screw and washer from a GE brass bell oscillator 1920-24.   Your knurled screw would make it very convenient to change the degree of oscillation without a screwdriver.

That looks fantastic and such a great idea. GE should have done that from the factory.

Thanks guys!  
I've got a few other irons on the fire but I'll be making more of these soon. I'm hoping to have a few offerings to bring to the Mardi gras meet. :up:

Thanks for the kind words, this color combination has become very popular around here. Biscuit epoxy with gold metallic generously clear-coated. Gold is very touchy to work with but worth all the efforts!
