    Default Rivett 1020S - Button Bling

    Totally cosmetic, but I think replacing these buttons spruced her up a bit. All NOS Square D 9001 operators.



    My pilot light has been missing since I got the machine. Replaced that as well.



    Just need two more operators for the coolant on and off switch blocks.

    Glad you kept it conservative. There are "easter egg" colours out there!

    I assume you’re talking about the paint? I take no responsibility for the paint job.

    I note the Band-Aid on your thumb, You must be a machinist.

    The buttons look great, well worth the effort.

    No, not the paint. The con-trols.

    There's garish stuff as to colurs and lighting in the market as is actually distracting.

    Ah. What I put on are, I believe, the original switches in their original colors.

    "Conservative" enough to not distract in any case.

    OEM ain't always virtuous. Coupla cracked cross and compound handle spinners on my French HBX missed their shiney-wood era, are PLASTIC and in distracting Harlot Scarlet like cheap lipstick.

    Got me some Nickel-Aluminium BRONZE to make new ones of. Ever crack that tough 10K yellow-gold lookalike, I'd hafta be doin' sumthin' a Helluva lot more preverted than "usual"!
