You mean the trim ring threads? The knobs have no threads. Just drill and tap a hole for a setscrew in the knob.

What size is the control (shaft) itself, or what size hole do I need to drill in the knob to slide over the cable?

The Light switch is triangular with a height of 0.165" You can figure out what size circle you need to fit over the triangle.

The Switches and heater control shafts are all around 0.185" in Dia.
