[TenTec] WTB: 4229 Knob

I've repaired many cracked Tentec knobs using the "super glue" otherwise 
known as Eastman 911   Take the knob off of the shaft, remove the set 
screw, and open the crack(s) a bit using a toothpick.  Then squirt a 
small amount of super glue in the crack, remove the toothpick.  It may 
be necessary to work a wedge in between the outer part and the part that 
goes on the shaft. Allow the glue to cure for 24 hrs or so.  Should be 
ready to go again.
