Good point.  I'll try to find out for you.  My gut says knurled.

Glad it's working!!  It's hard to avoid the occasional RS shopping trip.  Ours has plenty of stuff, it's just usually everything but what I need.

I dont know that circuit but i think 2 100nF in series should be close enough (50nF) for test purposes.

Here's a cooler one, same size.  Fits D shaft though.  I've had success drilling out a D shaft knob before but it can get sketchy and if there's a metal insert, forget it.

Would these work?  Just over 7/8"

I think you still may not be quite there yet.  It seems that this circuit is function as a double sided mute switch to me.  I believe if you are trying to use 1 f/x rig with two guitars and two amps (or amp and P/A) you will need to also add a pair of jacks for a loop to/from your pedal board and a 4pdt switch.

After you center punch, be certain to drill everything out with pilot holes first, maybe a 3mm bit.

That's actually a great idea

Don't be afraid to try your hand at drilling.  I use an Irwin stepped bit for almost everything and it works great.  I put masking tape down first, then measure and mark on the tape so I don't have to worry about messing up.  Center punch and drill slow and straight.  My unibit doesn't tend to "walk" like I've experienced with regular twist bits.

If your holes don't end up perfectly aligned you can always go one more "step" on the bit and fudge the jack around to line it up.  Not ideal but I've had to do it more than once.

Awesome.  I will definitely be checking it out!

Hey.  I'm even newer than you are here!  I'm terrible at forums in general but Stomptown told me how great it is here, so here I am!

I love ordering from Smallbear.  They might not be the cheapest but the quality and service has always been great and they are my favorite.

Pedal Parts Plus is my next pick. 

For the most part, I use them both fairly equally.  It usually comes down to who has something specific I'm looking for.  Then I order everything else I can think of because now I'm paying shipping. 

For example, I like to buy enclosures from PPP but I will buy mini toggles from SB.  In my perfect world SB and PPP would join forces under one roof and offer free shipping!!

My favorite 3PDT's so far are from CE Distribution.  They are cheap, look good, and I have zero failures so far.
