Page 51: Part number for tapered knobs
The Reid Supply part number for the tapered knobs should be BTH-13 to match the 1/4"-20 threads of the machine screws listed in the drawing on page 8. As of June 30, 2010, Reid Supply indicates that part is out of stock. Part BTH-14 can be substituted but that requires changing the machine screw to a 5/16"-18 x 1 1/2". Or use a different knob, such as BTH-170 or DK-984.
