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

Well in some of the Madbean pedals, there’s a row of threaded pots and then a row of non threaded. The first row holds the second row in place.

I didn't think hot glue would be strong enough. Not liking the idea of glue, but maybe that's the only way.
ugh.

This got lost in the duplicate post, I think.

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.
