Greetings,
Any suggestions on how to mount a 9mm pot that has no threads to an enclosure?

Mount it to a board inside the enclosure.
Then, you can mount the board however you like.  Some JB Weld and spacers made out of miscellaneous junk hardware would work if it is a one off build.

Thanks, it did get lost. That's a good idea! I can't exactly visualize it, but it still involves glue, albeit jb weld is stronger than hot glue. But I suppose it's fair to say the pedal is a one off - so wth. I presume the idea for these pots is the pcb is mounted somehow holding the pot in place...
