    Knurled Knob supplier

    I'm not sure if this supplier has been cited before but you can check this site for knurled knobs:

    http://www.carrlane.com/

    They maybe kind of pricey but could be a source for one up cameras. CAD drawings are supplied for some parts.

    Thanks for the link, Don. I haven't checked their prices, but they appear to have an extensive line of useful parts. Bookmark added.

    I also supply knurled knobs of my own design or yours. I am cheaper than Carr Lane and can provide exactly what you want from brass or aluminum. Most knob orders take a couple of days from the time I receive the order until they ship.

    Most good hardware stores carry a line of generic knobs of various configurations with male and female threads and various size threads. The ones that I am addressing have phenolic knobs. Ace is the Place...your helpful hardware store...good luck.

    I've borrowed spare plastic knobs from the folder at work, metric treaded. These are commonly sold by bindery and finishing equipment suppliers. It was a perfect fit on my Shen Hao.

    Heres one supplier I found Googling:
