I helped a friend make dice knobs about 14 years ago. I think he got some of those "sleeves" that convert a split shaft to a 1/4" solid shaft. We drilled a hole in the dice, then he pressed that sleeve in. Might have used super-glue to help it stay snug.

I would imagine we used a 1/4" bit, but maybe it would be better to use a bit slighty under-size of that. depends on the diameter of the sleeve thing.

good question. Have no idea where he got 'em all those years back. Maybe allparts has them or maybe mouser electronics.

ok, try not to laugh or make fun of me too much, but my latest ALLPARTS catalog is from 1990 LOL !

has part # EP 220 " brass sleeves to convert split-shaft shaft pots to solid shaft pots" (5 pcs)

See if Brian can get 'em for ya.

Look on the ALLPARTS website to see if ya can find 'em. I'm too lazy.

i just got some of those a little while ago from a local guitar shop for like 4-5 bucks i think. i know it wasnt much. the only problem with them is they are very hard to get to fit on some knowbs. the hole in the dice isnt wide enough and i actually had to get an exacto knife in there and scrape it out til it was wide enuf. but now it works, although i dont think they look very cool once they'r on there.
