knobs for Mic receiver
« on: August 13, 2013, 12:45:04 AM »
So I finally added some knobs to my Vocopro UHF-5805 mic receiver (http://www.vocopro.com/products/product_info.php?ID=466) as I posted before I was sort of annoyed that these knobs were not part of the package.  So decided to go hunting for these knobs but damn they are hard to find even Radio Shack doesn't carry them.  So Hong Kong to the rescue via ebay.  I found these http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-Colors-Knobs-Assortment-Kit-for-6mm-18-Teeth-Shaft-Pots-SKU106002-/370872086299?pt=US_Pro_Audio_Parts_Accessories&hash=item5659b2ef1b
 and i thought they were perfect for the application because of the different colors.  I ordered them...

Well...I got them today and I quickly realized they were not perfect.  The gripping teeth are too recesed and they don't grab the smallish receiver knobs.  After a few minutes a quickly realized that I could trim part of the knob to make them fit. This meant that I would loose the marker on each knob they would now fit but there was no way figure out in which position they were in...enter my wife's red nail polish.  Easy peasy and in just a few minutes I have working knobs.  Take a look at the attached pictures.
