Abstract

The device shown in the figure consists of two parts molded from plastic material, such as polycarbonate, which performs the functions of a handle (or knob), spring-loaded ratchet/detent combination and a numbered dial and pointer. Traditionally, these functions are performed by more parts which are at the same time more expensive to fabricate and assemble.
