Sorry, but Airstream declared those round knobs for the "deluxe" window lift arms, "obsolete", many years ago.

Thanks for that info Andy,
Is there any other source that you know besides Airstream? I wonder if you could make a set with wood and the bolt. Just thinking out loud.

I might take one to work and see if anyone thinks they can make it. Then if that doesn't pan out, I will try a couple of places around town. Somehow it seems a person could start a business replicating this hard to find items. I appreciate the information and direction.

It's all about the cost and how many would sell over a given period of time.

Our history indicates that maybe, just maybe, about 6 of those knobs would sell per year.

So if a person sold six per year, each for $2,500, a profit couldn't be made?
I think it would be worth it
