Rockler Easy-to-Grip 5-Star Knobs - Threaded Insert
Rockler Easy-to-Grip 5-Star Knobs - Threaded Insert

With their smooth, rounded contours, top-quality materials and proprietary rubber overmolds that wrap beneath the perimeter to eliminate sharp edges and seams, our Easy-to-Grip Knobs are hands-down the most comfortable jig knobs we've ever used. Use them on jigs, fixtures, router tables, drill presses and more. The rounded shaft beneath the star knob leaves plenty of clearance for your fingers, and curves up smoothly to meet the knob. They truly must be felt to be appreciated—''luxurious'' is not an overstatement. Try them out for yourself—you'll get more torque with less effort, and your hands will thank you for it.


Features:

  • Ultra-durable construction with comfortably molded gussets.
  • Zero sharp edges—rubber overmold extends beneath the knob for total comfort and easy tightening.
  • Available in three different threading sizes, each with a threaded insert (and through-hole)

Rockler easy grip 5-star knob 5/16
This knob is the best knob I have found to easy gripping on my table saw jigs. Love it. I tried several others on my Router adjustable Trammel and ended up loving this one. I'll use this same knob on most of my shop made jigs unless the use is for a smaller knob.
This router trammel was not adjustable but worked ok.. I had to replace it with a adjustable trammel
Heres my router on the adj trammel with the easy grip knob for adjustment

Great Site
Many reasons that I use Rockler -
- Variety, quantity, quality of merchandise offered
- On-line shopping
- Tracking, including shipping notification, of purchase
- Able to shop as a 'guest'. Don't have to set up an account or have a password that I either can't remember or lose
- Never had to use any kind of warranty; but if needed, fell that Rockler would take care of it

So thank you for letting me use your website.

A very nice knob. If you're looking to have a nicer knob instead of the standard cheap plastic ones, this is it.

What is the size of the knob itself (longest radius or diameter)?
Michael D on Apr 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The longest radius of the EASY-TO-GRIP 5-Star Knob THRU-HOLE, 3/8"-16 is 1.1835 inch radius or 2.365 inch in diameter. I just measuerd. The diameter cannot fit into a 1.1875 hole as mentioned by Ronald O on Apr 18, 2016.
The 1.1875 measuerment is only if you measure from the pentagon apex to the opposite pentagon base and does not include the arc swing of the other pentagon outer points.
If the 5-star knob is to be recessed make sure you leave enough room for fingers to access the gripping feature of the knob. I would recommend adding an extra 0.75 inches to the radius or a 1.50 to the diameter.

Other info: the height of the 3/8-16 knob is 1.428 inches.
What is the material of the threaded insert in PN51036 knob?
Jared C on Oct 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Appears to be steel, possibly zinc coate. d
Need to size T-Bolt length. What is thickness of 5/16-18 knob?
Paul K on Apr 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I used the thickness of the two legs that I fastened together + the washers + 3/4" for knob thickness.
I have a material list that calls for 1) 1/4"x3/4" threaded round knobs, 2) 5/16" plastic t-knobs, 3) 5/16"x3 1/4" threaded star knobs. Could you match up with your stock? I will need #1(7), #2(3), #3(4), Thank You. The project is a saw panel.
