Does it exist: M7 x 0.75 round nuts in 10mm od?

I figure if anyone knows the answer, a Wiggler would:

Do M7 x 0.75 round nuts in 10mm o.d. exist?

The only thing I've found is this:

https://www.okw.co.uk/en/Acc.-Combinati ... 207009.htm

but they're 13.5mm o.d.

I can't find anything on AliExpress or Google either, which is surprising since M7 x 0.75 is the bushing size for the Alpha pots commonly used in guitar pedals and Eurorack modules and the included hex nuts are 10mm o.d. -- I would have thought that somebody would have made some round nuts in this size already.

Even the DIN 1804 "spanner nut" standard turns up nothing in M7 x 0.75 that I can find.

Amazing, thanks! What search term did you use to find it?

"Slotted M7 x 0.75 nut" on Google. Image search tends to be better at filtering out the riffraff for specific things that can be hard to describe, so if you're struggling to find the perfect term try sifting through some of the image results and you might have better luck.

Ahh I guess "slotted" was the key. I looked through dozens of Google Image results for M7 x 0.75 "round nut" yesterday and only saw those OKW nuts that I linked and some of the DIN nuts that don't come in the M7 size.

Thanks again, these 9.5mm look perfect.

IIRC, ettinger has a 200€ minimum order. Maybe a group buy could be a thing? Or better, maybe we could convince synthcube/thonk/etc to stock them?
