Hi,
I want to order a bunch of these from smallbear:
http://www.smallbearelec.com/Detail.bok?no=707

But the info on the site doesn't really give dimensions or say which type of pot shaft these are designed for. I know various people here have used them, so:

Are these ok with 6mm metal grooved shaft pots?

Anyone know how long the shaft can be?

Are these 1/2" = 12.7mm diameter?

And while I'm at it, are the coloured knobs exactly the same?

Thanks in advance

David
