View Full Version : Tower knob
06-13-2008, 10:59 AM
Dropped one of my tower knobs in the driveway and broke it the other day. It is from an '01 ZeroFlex tower. Black plastic knob with the bolt in it.
I did a quick search on MCoC and came up with tower bolts and the Chrome/Anodized knobs which look good, but are a little rich for my blood.
Does anyone have any extras, or know of a "local" type place that would have them?
MYMC / BAWS / etc, do you have any listed or any at the shop?

Try an RV place. Some of the knobs for an RV retractable awning might work.
i am sure mike or jim can help you.
or you could contact wayne at new dimension towers and he will have one.

Give anyone of those boys a call. They will be able to hook you up with the right one.

I'll wait and see what one of the dealers say, I try to give them my business when it makes sense to do so.
I didn't even think of New Dimension, good idea.
Got a photo? Try WoodCaft or Rockler woodworking stores.

Even better idea ! I am in the woodworking business, don't know why I didn't think of somewhere like that. I can prob go steal one off of a machine around here :-)
It looks like McMasterCarr has them for $2-3 each. Have to check thread pitch and length when I get home, but looks like a winner.
Let me guess- 5/16"-18, right? That, or 1/4"-20.

Cary, call Boats Unlimited in Durham. They have a whole box of knobs and such. Matt in parts knows what he's doing. I may have to run up there this week, if so, I'll see if I can get you one.
I saw a tower knob this weekend but he was wearing a crooked hat hanging on the tower of a tahoe (sorry, couldnt resist)
Go to the dealer and get the newer style that has a soft handle on it. Easer to turn and no breakage.

check out mcmaster carr. If you know the thread size, they have a good assortment of knobs and just about any other piece of hardware you can imagine.
