Handles for Losmandy Knobs


   Simple 1/4-20 bolts were cut to size by cutting off the heads and shortening the threaded ends to less than the thickness of the clutch knobs. The length of the bolts on the Dec clutch should be no more than 1/2 inch so that they cannot hit the RA motor. The bolts on the RA clutch knob can be longer, up to 3/4 inch is convenient. The knobs were drilled and threaded at a slight angle; a greater angle would have been better.
