I think a replacement would need to be machined. Or if he could find a large nut that will screw in, he could "build up" something by laying epoxy steel over the large nut.

... but if not, contact Anthony at ADM and he may be able to make one up for you at a reasonable price. He obviously makes replacement parts for the CGEM so he should be able to duplicate your part without too much effort.

can't imagine what could possibly destroy that knobby thing..!
I recently had to replace my RA locking knob on my Atlas. The Orion service rep said they should not break unless dropped. I keep my mount in a case with foam and never dropped the head. The knob still broke. Upon looking at it closely the knob appeared to be cast metal. I have had my Atlas on cold nights and cast metal does not do to well over time when exposed to some cold weather. I ordered two and have a spare for the "next" time.
