Making Rogan encoder knobs

Post by mutierend » Sat Jun 08, 2019 12:26 pm

Rogan makes encoders in the RB style but nobody seems to carry them, and I don't need 1000+. I know some folks have removed the skirt on a small skirted knob. (An example is the encoder on the 1979 DAO.)

What's the best way to do that?

hold the knob with its skirt in a machine vise,and cut with a saw.

Saw not to close to the knob to avoid damaging it.

Once skirt is removed cut away the remaining parts with a cutter knife until its flat.
