WTB: plastic insulation for potentiometer (see jpg)
« on: April 16, 2019, 02:32:13 PM »
Hi,
I bought potentiometers and they came with an insulating plastic, as you can see from the picture.
I would like to buy only the plastic part, to use it on other potentiometers that I have in my effects.
Do you know any sites? Preferably EU.
Thank you all.

I know smallbear has them. They call them dust covers. Not sure about any European stores though.

Floor-mat at the front entrance to my former place of employment. Oh... the irony.

Ok, I see them.
First of all, thank you very much for your reply.
Unfortunately the shipping costs are excessive for some plastic caps.
But you gave me information I didn't have.
Now I know they call them "dust cover".
Cheers from Italy.

Banzai Music in Germany have them, for both 16mm and 24mm pots, and in various colours. Here's a basic 16mm transparent one:

"Dust cover" seems to work in their search box. The 24mm ones are listed under "wah accessories".

Found. They just put them on or I'm so old that I didn't find them the first time I looked for them.
