I'm looking for knobs that look like the ones in the link below or similar, but I don't like push on knobs (will be using push/pull pots and don't trust them).

Anyone know if they exist and if they can be got for cheepz?

I don't think I've ever seen them but the two terms to help you search would be 'bell knobs' and 'set screw'.

I'm loving these but fuck spending 20 on knobs.

The 3 jobs and a spot of superglue if it ever goes wrong.

Check out the goldies at GFS. They are cheaper- not sure after shipping. But they look to be push on. I only mention this because I have never had a problem with push on knobs with push pull pots and these reasonably priced.

Bought the cheap, plastic knobs in the top post

They're the cheapest, plasticest looking things I've ever seen. Oh well.
