Paul's Thumbie adapters will , I believe, work with friction down tube shift levers,
probably need the square hole stop piece to get the surface the friction washers drag against.
Paul is in Chico California , ring them on the phone..
Don't know if there is a Groucho or Harpo, California ..
I was born there, in Cal, I ought to know.

Thanks FB and MassiveD,
I was aware of those options just was looking for other ideas.
I think I'll just step up and spend the money for GOOD shifters.
I've scrounged many of the parts so far but sometimes new is the least expensive option.
QUALITY is ALWAYS the least expensive option.
Guess I better take some pictures huh?

Not American spelling but the English spelling. See here for a good reason for why we should spell it 'derailer'.
