My Knob Fell Off!

The mode dial knob, that is

I have a feeling I heard of this happening to someone else?
It's very sparsely glued on, a bit poor if you ask me. A small grub screw would be the better way, or even a pin.
I've cleaned off the rubbery adhesive and re affixed it with some contact cement.

Cripy, no, it hasn't happened to me. But I've heard about shutter buttons falling off K-5's.

Ah, yes.. Thanks tomwill.

If it happens again I'll get the Dremel out and pin it.

Maybe we should start our own select group of those whose knobs fell off. Yes, the original "glue" is a crap (to say the least). My daub of silicone just keeps on keeping on.
