Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash

-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:

-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.

    CNC Machining Services

    I will make you parts from any half-decent dimensioned drawing or solidworks model. I do this on the side at work - I run a machine shop in Oakland CA for an engineering firm.
    Also available: Plating, Painting (of parts), Powdercoating, Anodizing, etc.
    Rates: $30/hr for CNC programming + 1.25*Material costs + Run time @ $30/hr This means that quantity discounts are IMMEDIATE and aluminum parts are cheaper than steel, because Al machines so much faster.
    Firm price quotes given when I see a drawing.
    I will post pics soon of some of our custom machine work.
    Sorry, no custom wheels. You can't afford them.

    What would an aluminum shift knob run? Say, something similar to UUC's RK2?

        Oooohhh... maybe anodized black? That'd be hawwwwwt, w/the shift pattern machined in the top afterwards so it's natural aluminum?

        EDIT: Kinda like this.

        Only w/the shift pattern actually machined into the top, not on an insert.[/img]

          how much would a small plug to cover the antenna hole run?
          it just needs to fit the same as the antenna and stick up .5 inch at the most.

            What file formats can you work with?

            IGES? DXF?

            I work with Autodesk Inventor R7.

              MOST preferred: solidworks, as noted... but STEP, parasolid (x_t), IGES are all excellent. If you have the capabilty, provide tolerances too. (even just hand-draw on a printout of your model.)

                Shift knobs

                I would love to make some shift knobs.
                Black anodizing will only add a couple bucks, and I can machine a shift pattern into the top for all of you that can't remember it (j/k).
                Aluminum is definitely the way to go.
                I need about 10 people to make the anodizing reasonably priced. I would be happy to take names and a $5.00 deposit, but I'll get started drawing it up soon and will post screenshots before expecting any $$. Does anyone have the time to pull theirs and give me the ID of the hole in the bottom, and the depth, and is there a set screw? I've never taken mine off.

                Jordan: Have you drawn one up already?

                Who wants 'r3vlimited" on theirs? (assuming I have permission from Jordan to do so.)

                For a knob just under 2"dia (this would be the normal one):
                Price would be about $30.00 + shipping in anodized black or silver, add $5.00 for shift pattern or other engraving. Add $60 for any other color :)

                For anything over 2"dia, $50.00 +ship because I can't make it out of normal sized bar that auto-feeds througn the lathe.

                please give me questions and comments!

                  id be down for a knob in black annodized with a shift pattern, i'd do the deposit thing, but only after I saw the picture first. In my opinion, the shape of the RK3 is much nicer than the RK2. I think a combination between the shape of the RK3 and the VSR "Wild" knob would be the ideal shape... here's pics of the two i think could be combined into a really nice shaped knob.



                  combined with....




                  those shapes combined (sort of) in black annodized alluminum, with the gear pattern engraved (no r3vlimited engraving for me) would be my ideal knob. Anyone agree? or post other ideas!

                    I really don't like the VSR knob.

                    Would it be possible to just copy the RK3, anodized black with the patter etched, of course? I'd be down for one.

                    Would it come with a set-screw and everything for mounting?

                      You've never held one.... ;)

                      Just a warning, be careful what and how you replicate knobs...... Not to be a prick but both VSR & UUC are closely tied together, and well I can assure you neither would take kindly to 'knock-off' knobs being produced.
                      Below the radar...

                        yea, that's why i said to make a combination of both, that way, neither is being made into a "knock-off" i saw the VSR knob in chris's car, and liked it a lot, i think it combined with the rounder shape of the RK3 would be perfect. as I said in the previous post

                          I would never. All design work will be based on personal preference. There are only so many shapes for a comfortable shift knob, but I don't _want_ mine to be like anyone else's.

                          Here's my first sketch:


                          I think the top needs a little flatting off for the shift pattern. I'll keep at it and make a couple protos.

                            I'm sure they feel great (or else they wouldn't sell). I just don't really care for how they look.

                            Hmmm... I guess it's time to comence "Operation Get As Close to Copying the UUC Knob Without Infringing Copyright"

                              can you copyright a shape?



                              i'll take whatever, black, with the shift pattern in it. for cheap. with a set screw
