We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is the knob that controls the seat position adjusting latch for the center seats of a Piper Aztec-F airplane. May fit other models, I don't know. This is Piper part no. 571-165.
The design is not exact as I did not reproduce the beveled edges. That seemed to be the point of diminishing returns. The difference isn't all that noticeable and has no effect on functionality. Feel free to add that.
This probably will never be a top-ten Thing, but these knobs are absolutely impossible to find anymore. This part was discontinued by Piper many years ago.
To duplicate the original, you'll need a metal sleeve drilled for a set screw. Will probably also work as a simple press-on without the sleeve. Adjust the variable shaftRadius to your preference.
