Maybe a knob for a Weber grill could be conscripted into service? You'd probably have to make a grub screw or use some epoxy to make tines for a knurled shaft.

I have both of these knobs which are pretty large. To illustrate, I have include a banana for scale. Note, the banana is not included. His name is Butch. Butch the Banana. We have many fun adventures hiking through the mountains on weekends. However, he does not like mountain gorillas.

Does Butch enjoy playing My Friend Pedro?

OP, perhaps repurposing a not-knob with a bit of work might be cool?

Ohmite makes some knobs in the size range you're looking for but they are crazy expensive and i haven't found anyone with stock, just 10 piece minimum orders to get them stocked. Maybe someones doing knock-offs of those.

Wow, you aren't kidding! They must be made out of solid gold.

They're big but they won't satisfy me I'm afraid. Appreciate the effort though of course. Thanks!

That's quite the knob you've got there.

If people are gonna post a pic of your knob in your hand, this thread needs to be marked NSFW.

EDIT: Brian are you just going to allow this kind of content here? tsk tsk.

Might also want to visit a HAM flea market, lots of cool old shit (old panel meters :)
The analog studio in the city where I live has a room full of 50's-60's measurement equipment which was used in early electronic music, that type of equipment often has ginormous knops (since the equipment itself is large).
