Finally got my Blofeld. Great synth (wanted to buy one 5 years ago)!
... but that volume pot sure is wobbly and those metal knobs were mounted by a drunk person :)

Just curious: Are those f**kers glued to the shafts? Any experience on how to remove them?
Thank you!

Hair dryer does the trick

The knobs are just put on and can be pulled off. You need to apply a bit of force though as they are not meant to come off easily :) Make sure to only pull into the direction where the shaft points. Do not wiggle the knobs off or the shaft may break.

Inside the knobs, there is a rubber inlay. This isn't rigid, so it's possible the knobs have been put on off-centered. Pull the knobs off and put them back on. Make sure the flat side of the rubber inlay matches the flat part of the D-shaped shaft of the encoders, then they should be alogned correctly.
