Default BJ's bottle cap knobs

I think it was BJ who advocated making threaded knobs for jigs and fixtures. My search savvy is about nil and I couldn't find those threads. Can anyone help?

I don't remember the thread but I use 2 liter tops for knobs. I use them for nuts and bolts. I cut a piece of dowel that fits the inside of the cap and then drill thru them to fit the nut or bolt head and epoxy again. Don't know if I did a very good job of explaining things but hopefully you will get my drift.
