John, do try Naim first - sometimes lost boxes of spares are unearthed, so you never know. I managed to procure some replacement knobs a few years back.  However, IIRC, I think that stocks of the tractor wheel knobs are now exhausted, in which case you could try ringing around some Naim dealers who stock s/h kit, or else you could brave the often choppy waters of online auction sites.

However, assuming that it disappeared at home and not in transit/storage and only later discovered, it must be somewhere!  Kids? Look in places like VCR slot if you still have one, inside speaker reflex port, between armchair cushions, behind radiator etc. i don't know how big it is: edible by a dog? Squeeze that plastic bag when you do the poop scoop....  I think I'll stop there!

Hi Innocent. no kids ,no dog, no vcr, No Knob  

 

Hi Ian, You are right 2 x 3/4 " about the right size If I knew how I lost it I think I could find it. Tru one moment there and next on Knob.

I am lost at how it has disappeared you have to undo the little grub screw to remove it I have not had that Knob long either.Now my system looks funny with NO KNOB ♥ 

What have I started . I am going to give all your suggestions a go and see it I can fined a replacement Knob.

Nigel now your true colors are  showing. It would be like taking candy from a baby . Good Idea ..... 

My wife says how could I loose my Knob just forgetting how to use it was bad enough but loosing it  

Yes 3D Printing now that is a proper suggestion and one I did not have my self , I think I will steel that Idea and do as You say  Mr Honeyball

Mind you Nigels one of stealing from a kids tractor sound far more fun. 

 

Could try James at Tom Tom he is really helpful, i'm sure you wouldn't have to visit the store for a demo, he could just post it to you

I do actually have one here, but I am keeping it a similar reason in case I need one in an emergency! They are rarer than hens teeth sadly.  It would be great if there was a way of obtaining the cad models to have a reissue of old spares, as I am sure there are loads of owners with missing or damaged knobs (no pun intended).

Thanks for telling me you have one Lewis that's a great help  

Where do you keep it Lewis can I come and take a look, AH hold on I will ask NigelB to pop over some time after dark.

No seriously now. Would you take a couple  a buckets or rocking horse poo for it I have run out of hens teeth.

The nice fellas over at tom tom  have no stock at this time .

The rumours about me being the phantom Naim knob nobbler are simply untrue. UNTRUE I say!

BTW does anyone know where Lewis lives? 

Indeed the chaps at Tom Tom are great.

ROFLOL. Nigel What can I say, you claim innocents but, as I see it there is only one innocents here  Mr Bystander.

I will get to the bottom of this sooner than later I have decided to knock the house down to find the KNOB

The wrecking balls are on the way. Hold it we are packing to move house maybe I have packed it (Dam).

 My wife is still telling me I must have lost it a long time ago. She can't remember seeing it for years  

OK, OK, I admit it. I am obsessed with the damn things. You must agree however my 'newly acquired' (ahem!) Naim knob looks really cool on my old Kenwood. Sorry Hoss.

You can try, but you'll never catch the phantom Naim knob nobbler!

Mwaahhh, haaahhh, haaahhh.

Well now I know where it is .I will see you "Phantom" when we Holiday in the uk next Christmas we have to go a see all the old rellies before they part from this plant. We will be there for about 12 weeks 

Oh did I tell you I am from The uk born oldham 

 

That's sacrilege that Photo. You should be a shamed Phantom. Now that the truth is out you will have to change your handle.   

I FOUND IT  I FOUND IT   I FOUND IT ,My KNOB has returned  I am now at peace with the world. I will now die a happy audiophile.

Ok here goes. First I must apologize to Nigel (even though he did admit he was the infamous " PHANTOM KNOBBLER" he must have got someone else's Knob not mine, but I understand he still has a knob fetish.

 I thank all you for you post and Mr Administrator for being so tolerant.

Ok to end the mystery. As I said we were moving house and when we were all moved in, I thought it was time I looked after the cats beading (flea season come up and all) in her basket and low and behold they was my KNOB sitting under her blanket. But still how did she undo the grub screw. well we will never know. The thing is I can’t remember the last time I touched the knob as the tuner has never had the station changed in forever. So, one of life little mystery’s is now all sorted.

Thank you all for your kind suggestions and your humour all appreciated

Good news Hoss, but I have a confession.

When you were all out at your old house, I crept in as I suspected there might be a Naim knob to be knobbled. Then, just as I got the grub screw out in the pitch black of night, I heard someone at the front door. I panicked, yanked the knob off and stashed it in the cat's basket, planning to return later to complete my dastardly deed.

Blow me down, when I returned, the house was empty. You had moved!!

I do feel better though for bearing all.

Please forgive me. Anyway, all's well than ends well I guess.

Now the mystery is over!!!
