drilling a 5mm hole, cutting a 6mm thread, srewing in a M6 Nylon screw. Cutting the length and pressing the front flat with an engineers pliers. This works really good, even with a pdp8/a frontpanel.
I might use a black Nylon next time....
Hi Volker, a "counter-sunk head screw" is "Senkkopfschraube" in German.No, there is no counter for the screw, even in the tread just pressing the nylon a bit counters enough. So I got 2 from one srew.
6,35mm would be too much I think, the original black balls are 6,35mm. You do not center the drill and thread that exact.
It works really good like it is, even if it's quick (and dirty).
