I'm looking for some tips on removing the pots knobs from my amp.

I don't know how to do it.

I need to access the solder side of the board to replace some electrolytic power caps that are making the amp motor boat, and even though I unscrewed all the screws the pot knobs are still acting as screws holding the board to the chassis.

Thanks!

This works for most knobs:

Take an ordinary shoestring, wrap it around the under side of the knob once or twice, then lift up with the ends.

Thanks! It worked!

Next step is to find my Craftsman wrachet set to remove the nuts that are still holding the pots to the chassis.
