Our extra-tall knobs rise above most fences, giving your fingers plenty of room to loosen and tighten them without bruising your knuckles. As tall as they are, they're easily accessible from any side, meaning less legwork to set up your machines. Perfect for router table fences, drill press fences and band saw fences, where their ergonomic shape and comfortable materials make them a pleasure to use. They truly must be felt to be appreciated.
Ultra-durable construction with comfortably molded gussets
No sharp edges—rubber overmold extends beneath the knob for total comfort and easy tightening
Extended-length insert for extra thread durability

I needed these to replace two of the knobs on the back upright portion of my router table's fence (for the sliding fence faces), as the dust port made them difficult to reach. I removed the flared piece at the foot of the stem, and ground down the star so it would clear the table, and they work brilliantly.
A little modification and these knobs make it easy to get at those pesky adjustment knobs.
These work really well, as all other reviews indicate. However one of the 4 I purchased is defective and the thread insert came out while trying to tighten the knob to the router fence. I was not over tightening, just trying to get it to grip and tighten normally. I repaired it with super glue, but I think the inside of the plastic part is now stripped and I'm not sure anything will repair it completely.
These would be great if they were threaded completely through. I also bought the t-bolts to go with the knobs and they would only thread in about 3/8" - 7/16" into the knob. I tapped the remaining threads and the knobs work OK now but I would not recommend them based on this experience.
Very disappointed in the design and quality of these knobs! Threaded inserts pulled out the first time I used them. Made a test cut and proceeded with the cut for my work piece when the fence moved ruining the piece. Like the height and hand grip capability but the design needs improvement!! Definitely would not recommend this product!!!
Totally disappointed in the quality of these knobs. I purchased the 1/4"-20 knobs online. Unfortunately, the threaded insert on one was put in crooked and the threads were deformed. The second also had mangled, deformed threads. Both knobs were initially unusable. I managed to salvage one by cleaning up the threads with a rethreading tool. Unfortunately, the second one was not salvageable; my rethreading tool broke inside the knob.
