Just a suggestion
Thanks! That will be the 3rd headphone jack for this amp.

The 5mm front panel or the Neutrik jack? My money is on the latter...

Plan twice buy once! It's cheaper than planning naught and buying thrice.

Besides, if you put the locking connector to the blender test, then it won't really be a waste now will it?

Cheers,
Owen

How do you think DIY'ers end up with such a good 'stock' of parts for a future project? :-)

Well I've got the non latching Neutrik jack as well. I'll just need a thinner front panel.

Where do I get a front panel? I can drill out the holes for the jack, switch and pot.

The non latching jacks like this - NMJ6HFD2-AU - Neutrik - should easily do 5mm ??

Have you already made a hole for the D socket? Why couldn't you mount the D socket anyway? I'm confused as to why this is an issue that needs a whole new front panel ...

I've already drilled out a rather huge hole about 24mm to fit the locking neutrik jack (but it wouldn't quite fit without removing the screw).

I'll get someone to print the panel out of plastic.

can you not arrange for the 5mm panel to be milled to accept the jack?

opc: yes neutrik jack lol, I suppose given a large enough blender the 5mm front panel may blend.

too slow

Ahhh I think I see the problem now.

I wonder if its a job for a file and a bit of elbow grease?

Another option is to make the 24 mm hole a touch larger and get a gasket from neutrik, not as neat but might get the job done.
