My friend's NiteFly has a knob missing. Is the original manufacturer of these knobs known?
They seem to be made from a rubber (like) material.

Ken made the original NiteFly rubber knobs; Mike G. has these available on Reverb.

The knobs above, which are for the Fly, are actually a catalog item.

Parts and Mike’s contact info available on the Anatomy of a Fly post.

A pity they have sold out. I'm trying to source some of these knobs for my NiteFly SA that I have on the way from Malta.

Thank you ever so much. Just bought a set. My Nitefly restoration project is going to be well underway soon.
