Slow Mo Controls

Hi all, one of mine broke so I am looking to replace them both. Does anyone know where I can get the knobs or arms because I cannot find them anywhere!

Thanks all

29 people viewed this and not one knows where to buy them from??? Are they like gold dust or something? lol

I bought a pair of flexible control knobs on the end of a stalk a while ago, if that's what you're talking about. From Sherwoods. It was quite a job to find them.

Here is the link,
The knobs are half way down the page.


They were a bit pricey at £20 a pair but they have been fine and would probably fit other mounts (quoted as being for eq5 ).

I was actually after just knobs rather than arms, I always find they get in the way but ty for this, if i dont find any knobs then I will get these

Thanks again

i had this same problem a while back with my old scope. I simply sent the broken part back to the manufacturer and recieved a replacement in about a week. That was bresser, which i believe is connected with meade.
