Default Control knobs with skirts wanted for Ferrograph Studio 8

Hello, can anyone help me? I am looking for ideally 20 X control knobs to replace missing and damaged ones on a few Ferrograph Studio 8 machines I have, I don't know if they are SIFAM or another company, I am looking for the exact type in the pictures though I know others will fit I want to try and restore the recorder to original

25mm Skirt diameter
14mm to tapered 13.5MM control knob
6MM shaft hole
12MM diameter cap cover

If anyone has any or even all 20 of these I would be very interested,

Many thanks

I believe they are Elna knobs, they made beautiful cabinets/chassis and the associated hardware like the knobs.

Hi Stuart, yes, Elma - you can probably get them from Farnell.

Thanks, I have had a look but the Elma ones are all slightly different, probably due to the age of these and design change, the closest Elma was PN 020-3520 and I also found RS did them their closest match was 463-8457, RS also offer a skirt which goes to 0-9 (PN 465-9921) where Elma's go to 12

Sadly these are not the ones I am looking for, I think the ones I want will only exist in someone pot of vintage control knobs, hopefully someone may have some ?
