i bet it is glued or melted onto a textured axel. i take it. it won't pry or slowly wedge off?

I have a similar notion...I want to get my Volcano custom-painted once I find an appropriate (ie: cheap) air-brush artist. (A sativa-based notion that occurred to me on the way to Hempfest.) I think lots of people will do it once the idea catches on.
Anyway, I just looked, and don't see a way to take that knob off either. For my needs, masking will suffice, but it would be much easier (and safer) to transport the casing rather than the entire unit.
BTW GriM, what do you have in mind for yours?

LOL!! :D Too rich for me.
I was thinking of something based on the old "Helping Hands" avatar.
lol yup its getting a coat of airbrushing but dont want to pry the knobs off as i would have to pry against the alum.case not a good thing emailed s&b but no reply on how to remove the knob go figure...lol
BTW GriM, what do you have in mind for yours?just getting a lil "color" adding a coat of translucent purple (so orig silkscreen shows through)then a lil art havnt decided on what art axactly yet like your idea but not sure if i trust my painter to do the logo ;)

He can take anything apart...and put most things back together too, which is even more impressive. :p

There must be a way to do it. I've seen a custom coloured volcano at THC shoppe in downtown Toronto. It was a custom blue colour,clear-coat type paint, guy there told me it was done by a guy who does custom paint on hot-rods, no Maaco job either. Looked very nice.

i dont have a volcano personally but does the knob have a screw on it? Maybe its superglued on?

I have never taken my volcano apart other than just cleaning all the part's that are nesessary for day to day maximum use.
I have had mine for 18 or so month's and have never cleaned the inside, is it time?
Does anyone know about the new official volcano part's, that include the new screens for OIL?
well the knob is on there with a setscrew way in the back but found the cover comes off fairly easy with the knob on just have to pull from the back ;)......

Is there a screw holding the knob on? if not just get a butter knife behind it and work your way around, it should come off:)
