Pentax MV: Missing Rewind Knob

Hi, I just found my dad's Asahi's Pentax MV and it has a missing rewind knob. My question is will other rewind knobs such as from the ME, ME Super, MX, etc. will work as replacement parts?

I don't think it will work. I just checked an MV1 (like the MV, as far as I know) against an ME Super and they attach differently. The MV1 has a female shaft threaded on the inside to accept a screw which holds the knob on; the ME Super is a male shaft threaded on the outside, which screws directly into the knob.

Ouch. I bought a knob for the ME and ME Super and I'm still waiting for it to arrive. I bought it cheap though but if that doesn't work, I'll try to do some DIY repair on it and see what happens.

FILM REWIND KNOB forASAHI PENTAX ME and ME-Super

Here you go. This seller is Japanese so it may take 2 weeks to get to where you live if you''re in the US but the shipping's cheap so I'm not complaining XD

Update: I already got my part, as I thought, it does not fit. The hole on my part is a bit too small on the MV. I'm thinking of modding the part to make it fit on my MV but I'm not exactly sure yet. For now, I'm using a mini wrench to rewind the camera ._.;
