I have two FT1000D that both have the same problem. I can't get the main
tuning knob to come off.
I have removed the rubber ring and gained access to the set screw. In
loosening the set screws, they came out completely. I was able to get them
out through the hole in the knob.
However, both knobs show no sign of moving at all. I am afraid to pull too
Any suggestions? Everything I have read implies that loosening the set
screw should have made the knob easy to remove. What am I missing?
