Hi,

I know that there are small brackets for mounting PCBs that you attach lika a washer between the panel and for example a pot.

I need them for euro modular projects.

What are these called and where can I buy them?

Thanks!

I like the sduck method of using tin snips to trim down a piece of flashing or similar material as seen on the thread roglok linked. An added bonus of this method is ease of service / troubleshooting / modification.

edit: it appears in that particular thread sduck is showing a purpose-designed bridechamber bracket. I think he also suggested the flashing / tin snips in another thread.


There are also the small pot brackets as seen on Oakley builds:

http://www.oakleysound.co.uk/comp.htm

Look at the second picture. Under stress the pot brackets take the strain instead of just the PCB traces where the pot is soldered.

I've never used these little brackets. Anyone have a part no or proper name for these things?

Here is an alternate approach that works where space is at a premium. It does require mounting holes drilled through the panel. The example is a 4hp J3RK FADR, about as cramped as a panel can get.



Materials:
4-40 nylon standoffs, screws and nuts - McMaster Carr
4-40 stainless steel crews - McMaster Carr
L brackets one side drilled 1/8, the other drilled and tapped 4-40.
The brackets are available from Mouser part number 534-612, $0.25 each.
Better hurry, there are only 56,066 in stock in US.

Get a dremel tool and some tin snips - you can make a bracket out of almost anything. I've used a lot of roof flashing from home depot, but it's kind of flimsy. Lowes sells sheets of aluminum in various thicknesses - I bought a few of these that are a bit thicker and they work great.

I had these made. No holes to drill in the front panel. Made for 4U Serge spacing but you could do something similar for euro.

just posted this in the SDIY gloat thread - similar to the aluminium L bracket method, but more useful for parallel mounting:
