This is an idea I had. With the availability of 3D printers these days, is it possible someone could get into making replicas of the GE bakelite/plastic oscillator knobs?
Fortunately all of me GEs have their knobs, but many times these are missing. It's also a commonly asked question on the forum as well, as to where to get them. Unfortunately there are much more fans than there are knobs.

It could be a good little side project to get into. I know these are not high value fans at all, but they are nice little runners.
