IIRC I found a couple of those knobs a few months back. A transplant or replacement knob may be possible if the ones I'm thinking of are the same.

That would work perfectly if you have some. Let me know and I'll buy em!

Still looking for knobs or ideas to fabricate a new knob insert. Were you able to search for those knobs Tom?

Those inserts look like they could be made on a lathe from sheet aluminum. Shaping them using hardwood over a wooden dowel shaped on the end like the mating surface of the plastic knob.

The real trick would be to keep the center smooth as it needs the lathe's "dead center" to keep it in place while shaping.

Never tried it but just an idea from my experience in a shop. I have an HH Scott stereo receiver missing several similar aluminum "caps" from its knobs. The glue was not worth crap in the old days.

I found them, and they may work.

I'm trying to find a way to upload the pictures. My main PC melted down back on saturday so I need to figure out my flickr password or wait till the spare parts for my machine show up....

No worries, just let me know when you can get them up. Just PM me or post it here.

Now that my main PC is working again... Here are the pictures.



They are different in that there is more metal covering the plastic, but the plastic and the center of the metal caps appear the same. There are two avenues I see for using these: Cut the center out of the channel knob metal, or use the center of the knob you have to complete the knob I have that is missing it's center and have a set of knobs with more metal on them on the set.

I'll let you have one or both of the knobs for $5+whatever shipping costs.
My PM box is near capacity so use my Email, or PM me for my email address and we can work out the details.

Sorry for the late reply, just saw this. The only thing I could really do is to cut out the centerpiece on the metal part of the knob. Question is, how would I do that cleanly?

Suggest someone skilled with a fine blade band saw.

Wish I knew of any. There's got to be a way to fabricate something to replace it. If worst comes to worst, I'll buy Tom's knobs.

Any woodworking shop or metal fabricating shop will have a band saw. Also consider 3-D printing of the knob. You may have to do a little legwork to achieve your ends.
