Need M7x0.75 11mm panel nuts for Alps pots
« on: June 30, 2020, 11:05:54 PM »
Does anyone have a source for replacement nuts for Alps pots? I need M7 x 0.75 with a width of 11mm (see attached pic).

The 10mm width is common and available, but no one seems to have/use the 11mm version except for Alps.

This is what Taiwan-Alpha uses in their RV16xx series, I think..
..note to self: don't let Harman run your company..

Found some Alpha RD09 pots in the parts bin,  but they too are 10mm, not sure about the RV16.

I probably need 100-200. But if the Alps pots I need are available, that's even better.

I still have piles of 16mm  1x100kB (linear)pots, and 2x50kB (S taper) from my old kit company.  These pots are a few decades old so will probably end up in a landfill, sometime after I do...

Sent you a PM but seeing now you replied here.  Those values wouldn't work,  but maybe the nuts would.

It's the perils of trying to do small scale manufacturing with off the shelf parts.

I could slide you a couple hundred nuts (and matching flat washers too) but how can you buy pots without nuts?

This will make my pots orphans but they have been sitting for decades and I have no plans for them this lifetime... maybe I should design more kits... nooooooooo.

The issue is I need two different pots,  one is M9 the other M7. Since the knobs don't completely cover the nuts would prefer that both nuts be 11mm. I could send you the M7 10mm nuts to replace.

It's essentially a way to get something done if the MOQ for the more proper solution is not reasonable.

PM me your address and I'll drop a few in the mail so you can see if they'll work and you actually want them...
