    737 Throttle Quad Knobs

    Hi.
    I'm building a 737NG throttle quad ( on a tight budget ) and it's slowly taking shape.
    Does anybody have any dimensions for the various knobs please.
    I know you can buy a full set and I probably will at a later date. But for now, I could do to make my own just to get the throttle up and running.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Paul.

    Here's an ultra cheap solution for now.

    Cut one of these handles in half and you will have 2 wooden knobs then paint white / grey !!!!!

    Hope this helps!

    Cheers!

    You just have to use your imagination sometimes to get the easiest solutions.

    There are plenty of cork screws on ebay! lol.
