Can you tell me how to get the stock knob off? I've printed your replacement knob, but the original sits nearly flush so I haven't been able to figure out how to get a grip on it.

How do you replace the old wheel, does it just pry off?

If you're really fussy about getting it off cleanly. There's another slightly longer way to do it. Turn the unit on it's back, take off the bottom plate, then remove the 4 screws from the PCB that holds the opto-encoder that the knob is operating.
Once the four screws are out, just pull the board away and the knob falls off the other side.
Just throwing this in there in case someone can't get the whirling knives working for them. :)
[Discovered this approach because my unit came with a non-working knob. Problem turned out to be a badly made connector for that control board. One wire was just crimping insulation, not conductor. ]

Another way is if you have a nylon spudger you can probably pry it off with that without any damage.

Yup, it can be a bit difficult to get off without minor cosmetic damage, but the tip of a knife makes it fairly simple if you don't care about scratching the side a bit.
