I don't have the knob, but I'm using a screw that fits in there, have to do/undo it with a screwdriver every time, seems to do the job ok though (this screw goes in where the knob should be... I haven't lost the other screw opposite that holds the bearing in, it is still in there, I can definately feel the detente). Yes there is some wiggle/change in the lens alignment whenever I touch just about anything in that general area!

Aaaand, I ordered from Leica a brand new later-version light mixing box (still available!), so hopefully that will light the corners up so I can see what's going on there. When that's all here & together I'll be checking alignment again... new WA lens, head brought way down, corners hopefully sharper & better lit, that could all improve matters, or put alignment completely out of whack again!! I don't want to obsess too much... I just want to correct it & then crack on with some printing.
Thanks very much for your advice everyone, I really do appreciate it
