    Default How to measure/shop for knobs?

    I've found plenty of online stores that sell knobs, but I'm not sure about which one(s) to buy? how do I know which one to get? What do the measurements mean?

    I'm guessing you mean you want to put them on potentiometers/encoders. If you could give us a datasheet for the encoder/pot it would really help.

    The knobs you posted don't fit the pots. The knobs have a D shaped hole that actually fit to
    these pots if you cut them down a bit:

    I've bought these items, I used hot glue to glue them in place, the friction fit is sh!t.
    BTW in order to see the dimensions you just click the datasheet link in the product page of whatever you want to buy in sparkfun.
