    Will get back with you after Dayton Hamfest. Does not look like it will be a problem.

    You can see the knob in person at the Elecraft booth. Have a great trip!
    Also having knob scooped out in back to reduce weight would prob be good to consider as many KX2 users are backpack operators like myself.

    I saw the KX2's at the Ham Fest and believe I can do this with the dimensions you have given me. I can make these they are a little bigger than the FT 817 knob. Are you wanting Brass or Aluminum? The Aluminum would be $35.00 each and the brass $45.00.
