Greetings, this may be hard to describe, but I'll try.  I was given a TS-440S by an elderly ham.  It was somewhat disassembled but all the parts were there.  He does not know why it was taken apart.  I reassembled the radio and powered it up and all seems well.  So far that is, and it seems to have potential, the display is good and all the controls seem to work and it has a good receive and full output.  My problem is the main VFO tuning knob.  It has been drilled out, I assume there WAS a set screw retaining the knob?  Now there is an approximate 1/4 inch hole about half the way through the knob.  I don't see any brass shaft or brass cuttings in the hole, just aluminum cuttings.  The knob won't come off and I would, obviously like to remove and replace it.  I guess the question is , should it slide off a shaft as other VFO knobs do?? Or is there something I'm missing??  I can't find a diagram of this area or a description of the removal procedure.  If you have removed them (VFO knobs) in the past, perhaps you can let me know if it should come off in this way.  I really appreciate any info you can provide.  Thanks for reading.

It's probably just like the TS-430S I have.  People kept telling me there was a set screw when there really is no set screw.  You simply pull it (gently) off the shaft.  It's anyones guess why someone drilled a hole in yours.  Maybe they thought drilling a hole would losten up the knob enough to pull it off.
