Help with switch tops.
« on: January 06, 2019, 02:27:51 PM »
Hi,
I have destroyed a couple of these now and could use some help. The switches arrive with the straight shaft that has a channel in the side, like in the pic, but the diagram of the same switch shows it should have a threaded top. How do you get the cover off the top to reveal the threaded portion? I tried a wrench, but the whole top just rips off.

Are you sure that there is a threaded bit underneath?  Maybe their diagram is just wrong.  Wouldn't be the first time I've seem bad documentation. 

Which doesn't really help with your question... Sorry.  :-\

That's an unthreaded bushing, what's the part # you ordered, either you were sent the wrong one or the part number was wrong.

Hi,
The part I was told was C&K 7411SYZQE. I am doing a mod on a G&L L2000 bass and need a threaded top on a 4PDT On/On/On switch. Any help would be great. I've blown about $80 buying the wrong switches so far.
Thanks again,
Brad

Digikey shows that part number as a 3pdt 0n/0n/0n with a threaded bushing, so shouldn't look like the one you pictured.

Not sure what sort of specs you need. May be others here.
