My CT100 loat a knob!

This is a stupid thread to put here, but where else?

Last night I did a full B&W gun screen/background/gain balance and adjusted the AGC on my CT100, it needed it after 20 months. It now gets good color balance at a bit higher screen brightness.

SOMEHOW I lost a knob, one of the four brown ones in the
pencil box.

Someday it will magically appear, of course, but in the meantime ...

where do I find another one?

Those small knobs were used on many RCA TV's both B&W & color during the 50's. I'm sure a member here can help you out. There's a guy on Ebay selling them for $10.00 apiece. Outrageous!

I'm almost positive that I have some, and I know you'll be at ETF. Drop me a PM as a reminder so I don't lose track of looking for it. My 16 year old son just got his drivers permit today and he's sitting here waving the car keys at me
