    Hi. First post here.

    I have been restoring a Deforest 11DA651 and also a Stewart Warner R-178 as per pictures (3knobs per radio). In this regard I am looking to purchase some knobs either similar to the originals or close enough.

    If anyone has any you can part with lease let me know.

    thanks!

    They may be difficult to find. This place can reproduce them or they may have them in stock: http://renovatedradios.com/index.php?

    Good luck, Gary

    I have been looking for the same knobs for a Rogers or Deforest Crosley.
    They are like hens teeth. Those knobs disintegrate over time.
    They just crumble into pieces. I find very few of them, especially when the small center knob
    fits on a small shaft.
    If you get a load of them please let me know

    I already checked with Ed from renovated radios. Unfortunately he doesn’t have or make any of these. As Dan well said they do disintegrate with time. Its a shame as they are quite nice knobs.
    I will probably have to change them all for some generic set.
