Ruedecilla or thumbwheel
Explanation:
Well, no glossary, dictionary or anything had a proper translation for thumbwheel into Spanish.

I've seen several sites in Spanish and none of them used an expecific term for THUMBWHEEL. Most of them just translated it as RUEDECILLA or PEQUEÑA RUEDA and included the English word in brackets. Also they used RUEDECILLA TIPO THUMBWHEEL.

Some of them just used the English word.

I hope this can help

From the contexts and picture (second ref) given above, I glean that calibration is made by moving a little wheel with the thumb as you hold the model XXXX.

I cannot find a translation, in glossaries or dictionaries, but maybe an engineer will happen along

I suggest, 'calibrado por medio de una sencilla rueda giratoria'
