BLMS how has PCB pots
« on: June 18, 2018, 02:24:08 PM »
Subject says it all.  I was waiting for Lawrence to let rip on 16mm pcb's.  Still the fastest service in the industry.

Anyone checked out their powder coated enclosures?  What's the quality like?  Better/worse/similar to Tayda?  I've never bought from them but their line has sure improved in the last couple years.

Iíve used a bunch of the white ones. They are good quality and totally useable. Hereís my latest build in one of them.

$0.53? Seriously? That's insane. They're not Alphas, but probably have the same measurements? Any ideas on quality?

Did a restock order so am placing a lot of faith in Lawrence's stock.  He's never failed me so expect to report back positive.  Smallbear, Mouser, and BLMS are my goto's.

Powder coated stuff is perfectly cool for my stuff and most of the builds I do.  Not top shelf, but (and I HATE to use the term) for the price these are great.

Using some of the BLMS pots.  They have a very good feel. Not as stiff as tayda's.  No pin to cut off either.
They don't come with pot condoms, so I've got some electrical tape on the back.

Update.  Nice action on these things and no tabs to cut off so no complaints.  I had one with a mismarked value on the back case but the actual marking on the front was correct.  With absolutely no disrespect to Steve at SB (still my go-to) I've tried to do all my knob/enclosure/and now pot orders from BLMS.  Lawrence's shipping is second to none, even in comparison to Mouser so a nice benefit.
