    Default PipeHorn Reciever Plastic Knob

    Does anyone know if pipehorn sells these plastic knobs that turn the reciever on and off with the gain numbers on it?Had one fall off my reciever carrying it back to my truck in some tall grass.

    An old locator taught me a trick for this. Take a Gatorade sized bottle lid (roughly 1.5inches in diameter) and drill a hole in the center of it just big enough so that you can slide it over the potentiometer post snugly. This larger diameter 'knob' makes it easier for your receiver carrying hand's thumb to reach and control 'comfortably'. The original knob is so small it's just a bit out of reach for the average sized hand.

    I never lost my knob yet still opted for this replacement knob idea because it just plain works better. I'll try to get a picture when I go back to work on Monday.

    Try it - it wont cost you anything and it's actually better than the original dimensioned knob. Then you can keep your trigger hand on the paint at all times.

    Sounds like old school Hillbilly engineering to me. I love it ! Being broke is the true mother of invention.
