Is there someone out there that could make some nice catalin tuner buttons, if I provide the material? I have some catalin lying around, and I'm hoping to make a deal with someone to get some sets made
I don’t get the prices I see on these type buttons. I know they are pretty, but why do these buttons cost so much? I don’t get why they bring more than the fake pearl buttons? I truly don’t know, I’d love a set, they’re pretty, but they’re a lot of money.
But, just plastic, right??
They are beautiful, is that material colored plastic or ?
it's an old block of German catalin. No idea how old it is. It doesn't have as much marbling, but it's still very nice looking stuff
Duck Duck Go says:
Catalin is a brand name for a thermosetting polymer developed and trademarked in 1927 by the American Catalin Corporation of New York City, when the company acquired  the patents for Bakelite. A phenol formaldehyde resin, it can be worked with files, grinders, and cutters, and polished to a fine sheen.
