    I also use a wooden stick,shaped a bit like a musician's tuning fork, and about 3 feet long. The wide end has a tapered slot so you can slide it over the focus knob until it fits tight. Gaffer tape wrapped round the stick at the base of the slot stops it splitting. I use it for doing 20 x24 inch enlargements and it works perfectly; and cost next to nothing.
    To cut out the tapered slot, first drill a hole at its base smaller in diameter than the focus knob. Then make two saw cuts down to the hole.

    Another technique I've heard of but never used is a bicycle inner tube.
    Loop the tube around the focusing knob and use it as a belt to turn it. Don't know whether it works, but if you have an old tube around the house, it's worth a go.

    I had a flexible drive thingy for my Meopta Opemus 6 enlarger. I did find that sometimes it was easy to knock it and consequently have to refocus the image. I gave up on it in the end.
