I added a pointer and made it into a giant antique radio-style potentiometer knob! Thanks!

When I saw the image I immediately thought of this controller that they use with Google Earth in the lobby at Google:


Interesting. I have one of those exact controllers, but I never made the connection in the shapes.

Nice! I love these DYI repair prints. :-)

I assume the knob is screwed down from inside the lid? If so, you could print it in two horizontal slices, with a flat seam between them. This would allow you to go ahead and include that concave underside by printing the lower slice upside down.

Admittedly, overkill... your knob seems to work ju
st fine!

Overkill is the only way to go! "If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing!"

Ya, this was a really quick design while the rice cooked. The bed of silicone seals it and gives more strength.

Printing sideways would not make the grain go around the knob. As it is, it has a kind of "turned" look.
