    24426E82-D862-43BD-91FC-BF2D669B533C.jpeg My post this morning comprised four knobs from China and a bowel testing kit!

    I haven't included a photo of the bowel testing but for £7.68/$10.63 (for the knobs) I'm delighted.

    I'll need to ream the holes to accept 1/4in pot shafts but these are great.

    Here's the link:

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pack-of-...r-/293976821135?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l6249

    14-days door-to-door so fast shipping & a non-quibble return policy with a UK return address which is 5-minutes walk from the London office (near Heathrow Airport).

    I ordered a brass nut at the same time and that arrived last week (11-days from order) and is excellent. High quality and perfect dimensions.

    Good start to the week! :)

    Try not to get the reaming and testing mixed up. :lol:

    (I hope you test negative.)

    It may not come as a surprise but you're not the only person to made that comment.

    FYI, it's a standard, recommended test which has been suggested by my GP. You reach a certain age and suddenly you're invited for more pokes and probes than an alien invasion! :D

    The shop I used to work in, we'd order the cheapest drum thrones we could for the intro level kid's kits, and the cushioned seat part would say "stool thickness" on the box.

    Yeah, my drum seat is pretty hard. Can anyone recommend a stool softener?

    Yeah, my Sister had bowel cancer, a while back. Early intervention is always better, than the alternatives.

    Ha ha! You're right.

    The Chinese Knobs! The URL www.thechineseknobs.com is available but I think I'd struggle to front the band with the opening line:

    Nice. Back to the knobs. They look pretty cool. Most of the ones I have seen have plastic inserts. Those are probably pot metal, which could be iffy for longevity. Let us know how the reaming works out (and the test).

    I actually reckon Four Chinese Knobs and a Bowel Testing Kit is an even better name!

    The description says
    which seems to be the case, so well see.

    I'll let you know how the reaming (of the knobs goes). :)

    I’m proposing that it’s a weak band name.

    Well I wasn't expecting this.

    I've just tried them on a controlplate with CTS pots and the slid straight on!

    Look good and feel great!

    Bargain! :D
