Thought pics of where the shaft sheered off might be helpful.

The separation was way down in the bottom of the pot.

I hadn't seen this before. Wonder if it got whacked at some point?

Or maybe the fitting was just pressed together? I don't see remnants of a weld or glue.

The wiper arm would placed on the end and then swaged over and that is what you have, only this one is a bit off and failed eventually.

Also, any suggestions for knobs? I noticed one of my other old Love Rocks has cracks in the knobs. I believe it has the same Noble pots?

Thanks!

Same as but new. Those are a classic look.
