Does anyone have pictures and measurements of the original knobs on an Edison Schubert? Mine are missing and I want to see if I can find a comparable replacement.

I assume they are commonly missing on this model ;)

Here are some photos of one of my originals.

The grids are ¼" spacing.

I substituted some metal knobs from a Baby Console, which fit well. Then I saw two original Long Play console knobs for sale here last year. I knew the Long Play Edisons used the same wooden knobs as a Schubert, which originally was the fifth Long Play machine, so I grabbed them.
