Yes, I know about this Bob.
Knowing how well I fumble things these days, let’s just say I’d like a replacement as a backup!

> 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.
