I’ve used both these styles in various jigs,both the mini and regular multi knobs and cannot say enough good about them. I used to spend hours shopping around to find the right diameter knob with the right size thread and right length and the right type. These are very flexible in that you can use them as a through or studded knob. The minis come only in 1/4”, but the larger knobs come in 1/4”, 3/8” or 5/16” standard hex head bolts or nuts. The minis especially have been great, fitting in places that larger knobs cannot be used. I just used a couple with a 2 1/2 inch bolt. Very hard to find a knob with a small head and long stem. The minis come in packs of 10 for $6, which is a very reasonable price. They are very sturdy as you’d expect from Woodpeckers. Woodpeckers has some videos on them at their site but you can buy them in various places that sell woodworking supplies. The only improvement I can think of is to offer them in a middle size as well as the small and large sizes. The pictures make them look similar sizes, but the small ones (left picture) are much smaller than the larger ones.
