Hi all I've been going mad trying to source a 9mm pot that lays flat against the PCB and has a 1/4" shaft and bushings. Like the Alpha RD901F-40-15R series. Here's a link if you don't know what I'm talking about: http://www.smallbearelec.com/servlet/Detail?no=1139

After a long talk with smallbear explaining that there is a difference between 6mm and 1/4" they said they could get them in 4-6 months so they are either getting them made special or burning up the 6mm inventory. Long story short they might not even exist right now.

I am offering several kudos to anyone who has any info.

The world of pots is very weary if you need something very specific. I suggest you to do a search on the big ones like Mouser and Farnell. You can sift everything you don't need in big groups and then choose what you need. If you like you can ask for the paper catalog on Mouser and they send it to you. For my taste is better for searching components with important mechanical aspects as it ara classified by groups and graphics you can know all the meanings of the component codes.

Alpha pots are difficult to find as the codes from he alpha website are different from the ones of the stores.

I suggest you to read carefully the datasheets from different brands and you will find what you need.

If you can't find your pots in this sites please be more specific and I will try to help you.

even in china 1/4 is popular because it sells. I do understand there is a difference 6mm and 1/4in but you can switch to different knobs no problem.
