Though this is no help now, looks like in a few years, 3D printers could be used to make repro knobs and other such plastic parts.

Scary thing is, they can also be set up to make new cabinets. Not a problem in itself but if people make them and try to pass them off as originals it could affect radio prices and people's ability to trust sellers.

Still, it's like anything technology related. It can be used or abused. What I find amazing is how the plastic being squirted from a 3D printer dries sufficiently to support the subsequent courses and nothing sags or droops.

Have a look online and see what is being made on these machines. Looks unbelievable.
