OK, finally got the new Omni VII that I've been waiting for. Alas, in the
first few hours of learning how to use it, one of the knobs (PBT/BW) fell
off! I believe the setscrew must have been set on some area other than the
flat of the shaft, and now although it slips right on, I cannot push the
knob to change functions as the knob pushes all the way down to the panel.
Looking in the knob I can see the end of a set screw, but no opening on the
outside. Does the "ring" around the base of the knob come off in some
fashion? Do I use one of the 3 tools TT sent with the rig? Any help would be

BTW, not really a fan of these knobs. They do not have the nice look of the
ones with the metal ring at the base and all of the encoder shafts wobble
