Move the knob around the rod, so as to avoid the sticker. BUT it appears the sticker is on a flat spot on the bar? That would also be the ideal spot for the knob screw. Oh well...
Maybe someone can confirm.
I had an old dropweight many years ago (mid 80's and it was used) and can't recall if it was a sticker or etched into the bar. Seems like it was a sticker...
OK, I see what you're saying now. It is hard to tell if the numbers are on a sticker or engraved into the rod, imo they looked engraved. I will check and if it's a sticker I will do what I can to avoid damage occurring to it
