Need 2 knobs for Moog Taurus 1

Needing two of these bad boys [thx for the pic, Matrixsynth]

SmallBear had similar knobs, but couldn't find the right one, and after 19 pages of lookin' at rotary knobs, my brain shut down. Thx for any info!

Are those set-screw knobs? I think I have a couple like that...

Unsure, but likely ... the shafts are completely round and smooth.

Can you take one off and post pics of the side and bottom?

Unfortunately I don't have either knob, purely going from any pics I've found online. :( Any Taurus I owners out there willing to help a brother out?

Actually maybe you can just post a pic of the pot shafts. I'm pretty sure the knobs I have are the right ones...

These look like the same as the sonic six. I might have some as well. go through the alco catalog. they might be available new.

Here's a pic of the knobs I have. They're from a Moog Satellite so I think they're the same...

Thx much for the replies.

Synthparts, please disregard the PM I sent. I just realized (duh) there's a separate and similar knob on the back of the Taurus, which is grooved and highly likely identical to the Satellite back knobs you posted. Turns out that doesn't fit the smooth shafts on the Taurus front panel after all, so save the knobs for a desperate Satellite restorer. :(

Schmidtdc, thx, yet I'm unfamiliar w/ the Alco catalog. Possible someone can provide a link, please?

OK, I also have 2 knobs like this which use set screws designed to lock onto smooth shafts -
