But, if seeing the extra threads bugs you, you can use a black rubber washer as a 'spacer' to take up enough space between the wood and the silver collar, to cover them. There's pics of this quick fix around this board, somewhere. I think it looks great with the 'fix'.roadrunner said:As some here learned by experience, the wood knob does NOT cover all of the shaft thread and if you try to screw it down until it does - you're gonna crack it like a walnut.
Don't worry though, the few turns of extra thread are only visible if you are looking for them. I love my woody, threads and all.
