Does anyone know where to get the proper caps for the slider pots ?

Most of the heated up Switch Caps (as above) i used on those flat shafts split eventually.

I think the proper ones are more silicon based and bigger ?? Dead Banana

I dye mine. I buy the "soft-touch" toggle caps in white and then hit them with a mix of 60/40 water/acetone & rit dye. The mixture should be kept warm. I use a double boiler and am super-careful. Keep the heat low and watch for the acetone bubbling off (then you're too hot). I made a batch in "denim blue" and a batch in "royal blue". Not sure which I prefer... Yeah, it's a little bit of a chore, but make a bunch and you'll never have a split cap again. They feel much better too. Enough so that I made em in other colors for the rest of my 200r...

Have them for sale in 3-4 weeks. Vinyl - they work nicely on switches and sliders without cracking.

Have you thought about offering Easel pack, just so we don't have to buy 10 of each color?

Bought a bunch of them as they are really cheap. Personally I don't like that "plastic" feeling and the color itensity.

I use these: http://www.banzaimusic.com/Toggle-Switch-Cap-Blue.html
(do a search for "switch cap" to find more colours)

They are more expensive than the Led-switch ones however.
I initially used the Mouser ones and they were OK but all I bought after a certain date (autumn/winter 2016?) cracked within a day or so. Heating them first didn't really help.
I had the same experience with the Smallbear ones.

I replaced all the cracked caps with the Banzai ones in January and none have cracked so far.
