Hi Guys, well, i tried to custom make some with some drop offs of tiny brass tubing, adding two layers of different diameter, doing a cut on the lenght so for the set screw to tighten both the tubes, but the result is not that good, the pot doesn't turn very nicely, so i was wondering if such thing exists? Adapters for 4mm to 6mm Pot Shaft??
Or maybe some better trick?

Thanks a lot

www.banzaimusic.com used to have them for their 4mm Piher pots.

Best trick is to turn them properly on the lathe. Does not have to be brass, a tight fit acetal will also do. Unfortunately I am going away on Friday and I don't have time but otherwise I could make some for you.

No Problem, Thanks anyway for proposing, i'll stick with the Banzai solution, or change pots  :), i mean knobs  ::)

This should do the trick nicely... (and cheaper than Banzai)
