SIS09 Footprint Pots with Brushing for Panel Mount

Author SIS09 Footprint Pots with Brushing for Panel Mount

Hi, I am looking for some potentiometer parts which have a SIS09 footprint (like these: https://www.mouser.com/ds/2/54/tv09-777818.pdf) but have brushing so that they can also be mounted to the front panel. I'm looking for something of a height that can be used with thonkicon through-hole eurojacks.

Can anyone suggest a part for this? It's been surprisingly difficult to find.

I went looking for this a while back and came up empty after a few days' efforts. Eventually I came to the conclusion it doesn't exist, but I'd love to be wrong about it.

Yes, I've been finding the same thing unfortunately. It seems like models with bushing are mentioned in the datasheets for all these manufacturers, but those parts are never carried by a distributor like mouser or digikey.

Seems weird, I guess the industrial use for those parts is just nonexistent. seriously, i just don't get it

Hopefully someone might have a suggestion.

This? I think I just soldered 3 of these on my Hades.

Hmm... These look good, but ~$2 a pot is a little expensive. I found this on mouser when searching for an alternative source (thonk cleverly does not include a part number razz). From the picture and specs posted it looks perfect, but I can't tell from the datasheet if it has threaded bushing or not, the part number posted could refer to either:

Can anyone clarify whether this part will work or not?

Also found this small bear link, but it neglects to mention the shaft length:

Did not realize this process would turn out to be so arduous...

These are 9mm vert mount with a bushing and dirt cheap too. They have a much looser feel that than the alphas though.

These look pretty good. The lack of 1M in the series is a little disappointing but not a dealbreaker. Thanks!
