Knobs?

Post by p23 » Fri Mar 05, 2010 7:15 pm

Hi folks. I'm new here but I have been reading posts for a long time, and I have searched the forum extensively. I'm about to tear my hair out in frustration trying to find the right knob. I want to use this type of knob,

With this type of pot,

But I cant seem to find a knob that fits a 6.34mm whole shaft. I already have a bunch of pots, and it would really suck if I had to go and buy D style or knurled pots just to match a knob. Sourcing parts is such a pain. :bang: Do you guys know where I can find the right type of, "Soft Touch" knob? Does Mouser have these? I'm in the US so it would be nice if I can find a US supplier.

thanks
pete

As far as I know, those knobs aren't available in a set screw version. I just got a whole load of cheap split shaft pots to use with them, then I use adapters when I want to use big knobs

Thanks neandrewthal. I guess I will have to get knurled pots after all. I found a few nice knobs for knurled pots on mouser.
