    Stripped pod knob?

    Brand new excall, used three times and it seems my disc pinpoint knob has stripped.

    The stock knobs are junk, but, they made them that way for safety of the pot switches. Get an aftermarket set of knobs that have a set screw. I prefer the ones that use an Allen wrench rather than the one ones that use a small screw driver. I've had the screw driver type corrode and seize/strip. I also got the ones with a pointer that sticks out a bit. It makes it easier to turn when your hands are wet, and you can tell where the adjustment is in the dark. The main thing you need to be aware of with set screw types of knobs, is that you have to be careful turning the shafts. You can more easily break the pot if you get too aggressive turning the shaft.

    There are sets for sale on Ebay, or, as I did with one of mine, I went to a new/used/surplus electronics store and found some cheap.
