    Thanks a bunch Roman ... especially before I'd ruin any sink-knobs from the outside doing all those 'mistakes' you mentioned ... now where's about is my wooden rod :)

    Wish I had that problem. The bigger problem is no sink knob to un-stick. Lol!

    Great tutorial, Roman. I am certain this video will save the lives of many a sink knob, and the frustrations of many a sink knob owner.

    Do you have clear/tinted ones chromed, or are they not good for sabers?

    These videos are great Roman.

    Would appreciate a breakdown of a booster or how you attach the emitter without it sliding off the saber for your next video if you are taking requests.

    I sent some out for chroming a few weeks back. Hopefully, I'll have them back soon. Once I get them back, I'll post a few for sale in the JY :)

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but Roman, does this method work for disassembling your 4 part replica knob? I got mine super tight and cant get it back apart to get my cubes rotated correctly now.

    Hey Gang! If you ever have problems with calcium deposits, use this...

    http://www.jelmar.com/CLRbasic.htm

    C.L.R. = Calcium Lime Rust remover

    Fill up a small pale with warm water, add a small amount of CLR (read the directions!), insert the part that needs to be cleaned (sink knob, shower head, faucet screen, etc.) for a couple of minutes (read the directions!), remove the part from the solution, rinse. I wash my shower head with a little clear soap afterwards too and rinse repeatedly so that I'm 100% sure I'm not bathing in CLR the next morning.

    Hope this helps ya!
