Has anyone found/seen large thumb wheel potentiometers for sale?

I cannot find any which are 1" or larger. It used to be that the old plastic transistor radios had a large wheel on the side for adjusting the station, but I cannot find any large ones for a project I'm working on.

When I try Ebay and sources like Mouser, Digikey, they are all very small.

Any suggestions on where to find them?

Search for Polyvaricon (knob). Note, the adjuster for station was a variable capacitor.
