    In addition ...if anyone is considering this type of mod.

    I used steel putty and filled the inside of the Knob to about a weight of 1/4lb.

    The Knob has weight to it now..instead of a "weightless feel" to the original.

    Its got a much better overall feel when turning something that is heavy as opposed to no weight.

    cheers!
