Knob turning

So here you have it - the bigger the knob, the more fingers you need to turn it :roll_eyes:

I’ve always had a penchant for a larger knob.

With a hole in the end?

Do you gave to stick something in the hole to turn it - a new definition of knob turning perhaps.

This has got me thinking about those large tuning dials on old Murphy and Sobell radios. Anyone else remember such exotic radio destinations as Hilverum?

On a serious note, I really wish there was a knob at the front on my UnitiQute and Nova

Think they are more dials, these are knobs.

Densen, and the Dm10’s were even bigger.

Nah, A dial is a calibrated knob.

My lovely little local pub in Brighton gets invaded by some real knobs at weekends, often stag parties down from London.

If we’re looking for the biggest knob in hi fi. :rofl:

“KnobFeel…reviews based purely on the feel of the knob!”

I can’t access your link, but no matter.

The title sounds more like a Scandinavian porn film from the Swinging Sixties, though!

I would love to see a film with Rowan Atkinson holding forth on ‘Knobs’. He used to be so funny contorting his rubbery face to talk about words which were straight (on the surface, at least), but which had a smutty ‘back story’. He and I were at the same University, but a few years apart. I wish I had known him as an undergraduate, as I’m sure that he would have been a scream.

Rowan Atkinson deserves to be remembered for perhaps the best anti-war ‘comedy’ sketch ever shown on TV in the last ever episode of ‘Blackadder’. All the colour bleeds from the film, as we are shown the appalling devastation of trench warfare in World War 1, then bleeds back in as we see the red poppy fields of Flanders in the present time. Truly devastating film making, which I’m not sure that I’d ever want to see again.
