Of all jig and fixture hardware, few pieces are more prolific than knobs. A knob is the toolless alternative to using bolts and nuts with a wrench. They're always there and are just one turn away from holding things in place or easily removing them.
Something that we touch and rely on for consistent functionality should get more consideration during the design process than just low cost. It's for that reason that we undertook a “let's start over” approach to making our own knob.
Introducing our new Multi-Knob. A heavy duty, easy to grip, smooth contoured knob that can be assembled as a thru or stud knob by you, whenever you want. Need a 1-1/2” stud knob? No problem, install a 1-3/4” hex bolt and away you go. Need a 1/4-20 thru knob? Install a hex nut. It's that simple.
Heavy duty? Yes, heavy duty. Most low cost plastic knobs are molded with the threaded insert right up against the bottom of the knob making it easy to pull out and far less durable. The new Multi-Knob features a uniquely molded hex shaped recess on the top side of a 1/4” thick reinforced layer. This design makes the Multi-Knob extremely durable and resistant to pull out, an ideal attribute for frequently used woodworking applications.
The new Woodpeckers Multi-Knob is available for either 1/4", 3/8” or 5/16" standard hex nuts and bolts. Knobs are packaged in four or twelve packs. No special hardware required. Made in U.S.A.
