[WANTED] 1x Volume wheel (EU)

Post by peoplesbeer » Fri Nov 18, 2016 5:32 am

So I've came to the audio part of my build and I realise I've ordered the "wrong" volume wheels.
I now have a bunch of the thin ones while I want the thicker model, like this:

If anyone has a spare I'd happily buy it. I could of course order it from China but my build is coming to an end and I want to wrap this up pretty soon. So you'd preferably be somewhere in Europe for fast shipping or even better, in Sweden.
Just answer in the thread or PM me!

Thanks in advance.
/ Martin, Sweden

Can't you glue two together? That's what I did (I had a batch of 5)

hey, its me again. plz specify how thick the "thick" pots are, I have a whole bag of pots lying around that kinda look like that pic. I also have 2 sets of broken dmg innards you could cannibalize, that way you'd be guaranteed it fits.

beerman: Well sure, good idea but I want "the real deal". :)

Captain: So we meet again! :D
It's about 1mm thick, guess the thicker one is at least 2-2.5mm.

I guess that one would both feel and look better than the ones I have. Mine are really uncomfortable to use since they're so thin and flat. Sharp ones..

the 2mm ones I could send you like 2 for maybe 40 sek?

the original gameboy one I could send you one as is -meaning still on the pcb- for 100 sek. i'd send you the entire set of innards though, meaning you could desolder the ports, headphone jack and cart reader as well. just pm me if either option sounds interesting.
btw due to me switching schools I'm at Centralen 3 nights a week so we might even be able to skip all that pesky shipping.

Where are you guys finding these pots btw? I've looked for a while and can't seem to find them.
