    Removing old Moen with no set screw

    I'm helping a friend remove their shower knob to replace it but can't figure out how to pull it off. There used to be a handle and screw that held that in place but that was lost. It is a Moen shower handle. Any ideas or help identifying the model?

    Drywall / Coating shower renovation. 1950's

    Hmm. Consider this shower: This was apparently built between 1957 and 1966, but without the required City permits. It's now come to light with the authority having jurisdiction, and must be inspected to meet the 2019 California Residential Code. The City has no problem with the galvanized...
