8-ball shifter

Tip: Have you ever admired the 8-ball shifters on full-size early rods? And have you ever thought that making one in scale would be impossible? Think again!

If you look at the patterns on an 8-ball, you'll realize that it's not much more than a number of dots positioned over each other. Instead of trying to figure out how you can draw a tiny black number 8, dab a series of dots onto a small bead or ball of solder to create a great-looking shifter. Attach the finished piece on your floor shifter with a touch of super glue and you're ready to go!
