    Okay the PTC removes thousands of control knobs. I know you guys aren't using shoestrings, what do you use? Can I buy one?

    I'll bet they use the cleaning rag trick.

    Why use anything besides shoelaces? They work great!

    They probably pop off the ones they can with their hands and the stubborn ones get a Knob/Bushing Remover

    Just slide under the edge of the knob and work it up until you can grip it with your fingers.

    I'd rather someone else pulled my knob.

    There's a joke in there somewhere.

    The PTC just sends an invoice and lets your spouse handle the removal.

    I just 3D printed a Knob Puller and it works like a champ....

    but I prefer the microfiber towel wrapped under the knob. I have pulled some seriously tight knobs off without a single dent or scratch to knob or guitar.

    Yeah... just don't do what this "professional luthier" did to my Johhny A.... pretty sure he used a full sized tire iron. For all 4 knobs. Sigh.
