Mini pot lock washer size and source.

Post by TheMilford » Sun Apr 05, 2020 5:17 pm

Just ordered some mini pots from Darren Riley. No lock washers. They are needed to get the correct spacing on my pickguard. Some pics show the chunky/thick black ones included. Can anybody tell me the size of these?

depends on the brand. Some are metric and some are imperial.

Measure the OD of the shaft of the pot, they’re star washers I believe you’re looking for.

Just measured... CTS. They have a 1/4" bushing. Metric lock washers are on the thin/flimsy side... but will fit. Just would need to double up.

I bought some of these years ago that fit well https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HPI-Racing- ... SwEVlcKCeF

Check the dimensions in the listing. You might be able to find them elsewhere with the same dimensions.
