    so I made some
    Totally approve.
    And I bet they were cheaper than McMaster-Carr!

    Mind you, one can buy FOUR of them, with M6 thread, from eBay (from China) for about $1.60 total.

    Cheers

    The ones I found were only about 35mm diamtre.
    Too small....not enough torque so mine are 60 mm dia.

    Understood, but will the connection between the insert and the plastic take high forces? I wonder.
    Sometimes the diameter of the knob reflects the strength of the unit.

    Cheers
