I had that problem when I restored my AC76. Seems like there is some variation in height.

Fed up with looking at spindles sticking out, of the front of the set, so made my own knobs until I find original replacements. Using what I already had, quite pleased with them. Plastic pot lids, plywood discs, modellers putty etc. etc. I know I should get out more!

There is an AC 85 for sale online. Looking at the pictures is the lower middle knob the same as the side knob on the AD 76? Does the same job? Looks very similar from what I can remember.

The side knobs look the same (28 mm dia.) but the upper middle knob looks bigger (65-70mm approx. dia.) than the (50mm dia.) centre knob on the AD76.
