You can make a handle from hardwood. Just trace the knob profile on an appropriate length piece and then cut it out and shape and taper the other end. Now drill and insert a dowel rod for the lever handle. To attach the cut out hole to the knob drill a couple thru holes and lock with either pins or screws. Or you can attach with 2 part epoxy. I have made these for two different band saws. Works great.
