    Does Anyone know if the 3mm push nut will fit the volume pot of the AU-717? I can't find the m2.5mm anywhere in the US. I see 3mm available on auction site from China. Thanks!

    Have a look here,

    Post #1 & Picture #9

    2.5mm is the correct size to use.

    The supplier for these is 'RS Components' (not to be confused with RS = RatShack).

    And they still sell them:-

    Have you seen McMaster Carr Part number 94807A019 = 3/32" - which is just 0.119 mm too big - a bit closer than 3mm !

    Here is a picture of the size you want.

    I had to use a new post for this picture, as I was having a little fight with the original PhotoBucket image. :)

    Thanks, John. Unfortunately RS component international site doesn't have them in stock and It does not say when they should be in stock. McMaster has pack of 200. That's way too many for me. I just need one or two.

    Those look OK - hoping that the Imperial measurement 3/32" isn't too big to be used.

    Or you can buy them on eBay - from seller mohair-bear-making-supplies - you can get 2.5mm and only a pack of 10, for the $ equivalent of £1.76. ;)

    Sometimes called 'Push nuts' - to help with further searching if needed.

    It may not post to the US though. Let's see if he'll ship to the US. Thanks again, John!

    I just got a reply from the seller that he's not shipping to the US. :(
