Finally got to fiddle around with Dads new lathe. Was trying to figure out something simple to build that would be useful. So I made a shifter knob for my truck. I got to use a lot of different set ups. Faced and turned, couple of center drills, drilled, tapped, knurled, and used the part off tool. Didn't get picks of every step but here are a few.
used a center drill to chamfer the hole before tapping
Here is a video of the knurling process. I think my feed rate was a little slow but it still came out pretty good
Looks like its floating above the grand canyon! My mouse pad turned out to be a good place to take a pic of this thing
Worth mentioning but don't fit in other categories.
