9mm Micro Knobs
« on: September 29, 2021, 06:18:52 PM »
I don't think I mentioned these and I believe it flew under the radar, but smallbear does have some knobs that fit very nicely over the 9mm plastic shaft knobs used in some mbp and pretty much ALL VFE projects. These are nice because they add height and have a clear indicator. They do require a larger drill hole.

Anyway, still available. I just ordered a bunch and probably will get more before it's too late.

Shoot!  Guess I need to place a fourth order!  Those are nice knobs.  I used them in my BOTY entry last year.

Is it too early to start bugging Lawrence (BLMS) about the new items we will need him to stock?  :P

A few companies in Eurorack DIY have started using these knobs. Anything to cram more things into a smaller space, for a lot of Eurorack... (Usability? What is this madness you speak of?)

Is it fair to call them knobs, when they're more like condoms for the pot's shaft?

I was searching around for some Synth Pointer #4s, yesterday.  That's my new favorite, and only available at SB. No luck, but I did find this on a synth forum  ;D

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.
