    Hello,
    i'm searching for the knobs to turn the filter wheels of a Durst CLS 500 color head.

    Maybe someone has spare parts for this head?

    Here are some pictures of the part. I need two knobs at minimum... ;-(

    But why using original knobs? Knobs used on electronic devices could be used too after some modification, if you are into DIY.

    You are right, but the answer is simple:
    I want to sell this Laborator 1200, and i think it should sell better with original parts... ;-)

    Durst Pro USA seems to be dead.
    No answer to my email until today.

    The owner of Durst Pro USA has indeed passed away.

    The website is still up but the phone line and e-mails are not being answered. It's too bad; it was a good resource for owners of Durst enlargers like myself. Over the years he machined needed mixing boxes, lens boards and other items for my Durst enlargers - they were as precise as the original.

    I am pretty sure he did not work by himself - hopefully, the estate will be sorted out.

    There are similar though not identical knobs available.
    Just exchange all to gain an even look.

    Aha...

    It's not about the look, it's all about the special mechanical connection of (whatever) knob.
    I must confess, on the photo it is unfortunately not to be recognized well...

    ...and i'd rather sell the head including original knobs... ;-)
