btw: this would be the proper tool to tighten those nuts - an M10 slotted nut driver: http://www.pkelektronik.com/wiha-schlit ... 50-mm.html

can be had cheaper, but WIHA tools are a joy to work with... :tu:

EDIT: Of course it neeeds to be a M8 driver, not M10!

So, at 13mm deep the switches I have will fit at last without bending the PCB :) Not sure whether it's opened up a few more options for pots though ...

Here's a comparison between these jacks (LJE0352-4R) and some other popular jacks:

All the measurements are in mm. It's close to being drawn to scale, but not exact. The shelves that press against the backside of the faceplate are aligned on the lengthwise diagrams and the bottom of the jacks are aligned on the top views.

I am also interested in 500 nuts depending on availability and price.

Thanks!
I'm looking into the MOQ and price of the nuts. Once I get the appropriate info I'll post it in the Updates section. I'm going to hazard a guess and say that the MOQ will be quite large, so we'll need to see a lot of interest in order for it to go through.

8mm is a safe bet, although you may be able to get by with 7.9mm if you're crazy enough to want that 0.1mm.

Standard Alpha PCB-mount pots will mount onto a PCB/panel alongside these jacks and allow room for solder joints or shallow components underneath (resistors, diodes, SMD ICs, etc). That's actually one of the reasons I pursued these jacks over others as they allow PCB clearance for a wide variety of parts. Here's a depth comparison between these jacks, an Alpha PCB pot, and a standard PCB switch:

And a shot of the Alpha/jack combo in action:

You are a god amongst men, because I've never been able to find the right name to search for anything other than the M6 drivers at Mouser/Erthenvar. And because of your brilliance I was able to find one in the US as well: KC Tool M8 Slotted Spanner Nut Driver. I'll amend my first post with this and send you enough good karma to guarantee nirvana [edit: the teeth on this driver are apparently too large to fit the slots in the nuts. You may be able to file them down or you may not...proceed with caution].

For those interested in just the circular nuts, I've heard back from the factory and they will be $0.07 per nut only. Note this does not include the jack obviously. Also for those of you ordering jacks you do not need to order extra nuts unless you would like them for fitting on other jacks or any other reason - all jacks come with the nut already included. The nuts shouldn't take up much space so if you're ordering any jacks I should be able to just tuck them in the box sized for your jack order. If you would like the nuts only without any jacks the shipping charge will be $7 domestic (more for international), the same as 50-100 jacks.

For the technical minded, the nut is an M8 thread with 0.75 pitch (M8 x P0.75):

These nuts should also fit on jacks from TipTop, Synthwerks, Doepfer parallel-mount modules (like the A-183-2), the Subconscious Communications Plan B reissues, and the last Plan B M15 and M31 revisions.

I'm in for 50 or 100 depending on postage to Australia. I would prefer First Class international to Priority. I know it takes longer but the prices are far more reasonable.
