No, the T already has a large enough knob. 


B'sides that, most Rolleicords have the focus knob on the right 
side and hence are calibrated in different direction. 


Think about it, clockwise turning on right side for closer focusing 
and counter-clockwise on left side for closer focusing. 


Fifty years ago, I machined up a number of large and larger knobs 
for Burleigh Brooks.  The large knobs had a set screw to hold them 
on.  The larger ones had spring loaded ball bearings to snap them 
on the existing knobs.  B-B would punch out the leather in the cases 
to accomodate the large knobs.  The larger ones just snapped on 
and off. 


I wish that I could find some of  those knobs!

fit a Rolleiflex T?  Are there any differences in the diameter of the
standard focus knobs?Thanks,R.J.
