Just picked up a duncan kiln in great condition (fully works, never been fired even once) but is missing the dials on the front.

Just wondering if these ....

... will fit my kiln? (see attached) or know of a knob that will fit my kiln?

The kiln is an es model, but without being able to inspect the EA knob, looks like just a color difference. I've tried about a dozen or so different knobs, and paragon doesn't stock the knobs, only replacement switches.

you might be able to pick up knobs for older appliance repair. It is just a knob. Usually they slide on the shaft. It sometimes is a 1/2 circle configuration. Nothing very fancy about the knobs. You just need it to point to the correct setting.

Do you have a Radio Shack nearby? Pic looks like a half shaft that will take a knob that has a set screw in it. If no markings on a knob paint a line or arrow on it.
