Awesome Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
I found a very nice used FT-900 but it was missing something. FingerDimple fix that missing something!

That tiny add-on does wonders and makes my used rig feel like a couple of hundred dollars more expensive. hihi Ham radio is much more fun when you are tuning the bands with a dimple or spinner.

Really fast shipping. K8ff, you are a genius!

Thank you.

TS-940s LOVES FingerDimple Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
TS-940s has the smooth tuning knob and I have lazy habits ... was looking to replace with something like Kranker knob and then came across FingerDimple ... seemed too simple to be good but tried it - and LOVE it!! Perfect: easy to install; actually works ... and that is what I like best about it: IT SIMPLY WORKS!
My hat is off to K8FF - simple solution to simple problem: elegant! W6PUG

A Must For TS850 owners Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I've been using the FingerDimple on my TS850 for over a year and it has stayed on the knob without any problems. I don't know why manufactures send out radios costing thousands of dollars without a dimple or crank knob. Best and cheapest upgrade to the TS850 I've ever made!

Works great Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I've had one on my TS-140's tuning knob for a long time now. I can't imagine my radio without it.

talk about finding a niche market!! Time Owned: 3 to 6 months.
What a SUPERB idea!! Never new what I was missing on my Kenwood TS-850 until I put one on it. WONDERFUL!!

Nifty little gadget Time Owned: 3 to 6 months.
I bought a handful of these for radios I own that do not have spinner knobs. They worked great. I put one on each on my FT-1000D and FT-2000 sub receiver knobs.... COol tool and not expensive.

Great Idea Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I've used the finger dimple on my current FT900 and a previous KW850 and a couple of other radios prior and there are just simply a Great idea that really works.

Great tuning aid Time Owned: 3 to 6 months.
Large tuning knobs with a finger dimple or a cranck are hard to find in Europe. No problem, for my home brew transceivers I use standard knobs and stick FingerDimple dimples on them. All of my older Kenwoods now have them, too. Great product for a small price tag!

Knob to speed up tuning Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
Great gadget. Makes tuning the FT-817ND much faster. Installation is a snap with provided Allen wrench. Pop off the rubber sleeve, swap knobs, and put sleeve back on. Maybe 5 minute, max.
