I would rather spend the time repairing than investing in a whole new machine. There is no need to replace a perfectly good working machine for the saving of a few minutes of ones time. And it helps the environment also to make the repair on an othewise working machine that would be tossed out.

Krazy Glue on the broken face of each half of the broken knob and both sides of the metal speed control lever. Carefully align the pieces on the lever and sqeeze them together. Hold in place for a couple of minutes, use a snappy clothespin if you have something better to do. It'll hold just fine.

Lots of good suggestions. Gluing a plastic knob back together over a metal arm is something I could even manage. Any good epoxy would do the job - probably be stronger than the original plastic.

You don't want me to go that far in repairs. I dang near killed myself just reaching for my hair brush. I now have a large black and blue mark with a long scab. Looks like someone tried to slice my throat. Imagine what I could do to a machine with moving parts. I am not only a danger to myself, but to the world as a whole. Put a screwdriver in my hands and I could destroy a nation in minutes.
