Some questions & answers: How are they made?

The engraved buttons are actually batch machined on a 9 axis mill-turn CNC lathe from brass bar.

Can I have customised engraved indicator buttons?

Yes, but there are some caveats, the aforementioned 9 axis machine is constantly busy with production work so setups for custom indicators will require a certain quantity to fit into production. This option is priced on application.

Short runs of custom indicators can be hand engraved and these are also priced on application.

Why are they optional on some metal finishes and practically required upgrades on other metal finishes?

Sometimes the engraved indicator buttons are particularly necessary to select with a certain metal finishes. For example our standard flick mixer indicators were designed around the Chrome Plate and Antique Brass finishes. With the wider array of finishes that we now offer, the engraved indicators allow better colour matching and certainly provide a stylish finishing touch. Here are some recommended use cases for the engraved button upgrades:

Roulette Lever Flick Mixers / Roulette Lever Wall Mixers / DB Mixers

In these ranges you should select engraved button upgrades on any metal finish that is not Antique Brass or Chrome based.


3 Piece Telephone Diverter or Cast Diverter Sets

The diverter button should be selected to have engraved diverter button upgrade on any metal finish that is not Antique Brass or Chrome based.

Torrens Capstan, Torrens Lever, Torrens Flared Lever, Celestial Lever Ranges

These commercial ranges as standard have plastic red or blue indicators. When combined with engraved indicator buttons they become versatile contemporary handle styles that are well suited for use in domestic installations.


Raw Brass finish

In addition to the recommendations above, Raw Brass (finish code: RB) and engraved indicator brass buttons are an excellent combination.

Or can be a preference...

You may just prefer the indicators to be the same colour as the main (or trim colour) of the tapware.
