Hi, do any companies still make these? Only ones I find are plastic junk... And not easy to come by either

I was thinking of getting a machine shop to make a bunch of them up on a milling machine / Lathe for that nice CNC look and quality..

What would ppl pay for such a thing? It's only worth it if multiple sets are made to spread the initial design cost...

Thanks!

no one makes shifters that require them any more. The market would be tiny.
