Park truing stand parts

My park TS-2 has a broken knob...its the knob that adjusts the width of the legs from side to side.

Schematic link below together with part number for the knob. Contact Park Tool for info on how to get a new one (direct from Park Tool, or from a dealer):

Virtually all parts for TS-2's are available from any LBS. QBP stocks all the parts and any LBS should be able to have the part in your hand in just a few days.

BTW, that knob is the most common thing to break. The reason is that people try to tighten it way too much. There is no need for that. Getting it super tight does nothing for you (except to cause the knob to break prematurely).

thank you all for your replies...some great info on here.
my 'knob' broke from the stand falling down, unfortunately. seems the knob was the only damage. it will be re-calibrated for center though.
