Friends:

Getting ready for an upcoming trip, need to change the handle knob on a 16s.

It is the "permanently" riveted kind with a blind rivet on the underside of the handle blank.

The plan is to remove the rivited knob, and install a stock Penn knob complete with a screw in rivet from a 30s into the handle blank.

How best to remove the OEM riveted knob and rivet stem?  Do not want to mar the gold anodized handle blank.

Thanks in advance!

IMO- shelve that handle assembly and get an SS blade and knob from Alan to fish. I did that on all of my Int's. Cadillac. zero failure. Period.

Alan:

Not yet.  Will prolly order one from you, but want to assemble a fuller shopping list first for both the 16s and a couple 12LT's.   Looks like the 12's have the same sleeve size as the 500's, so pretty small.

Whit, you are correct- I put Alan's smaller blade (500 sleeve sized hole) on my 12T's with his 3/0 knob. Everything now matches and is a nice upgrade. The stock 12T keg knob is small for my sausage fingers.
