1. Small Pipe Cutter 2. Brass or Aluminum Tubing 3. All Original Parts to Broken Knob The pipe cutter was about 5 bucks. Get the tubing at a local hobby store. Take the knob with you. The diameters come in increments of 1/64th of an inch (I think). Select the size that fits snug over the cylinder of the knob.


Measure the knob cylinder length. Cut the tube to cover most of that length, but not quite the whole thing.


"Sleeve" the knob.


Match the flatted side of the shaft to the corresponding flat side of the knob and slide it back on.


You are now ready to resume making toast! Keep the tubing somewhere you will be able to find it, the other knobs are sure to break sooner or later. Done at TechShop Detroit!
