Default Enclosure Feet

I"m chasing 100+ quantities of attractive plastic feet for amps, something like the ones used on many CD/DVD Players. They should be 1.5-2" in diameter, and about 3/8" deep, with a central hole for attachment.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Hugh

Hugh,
The thing that's always driven me crazy about feet is that they aren't "feet." For some reason, I keep finding them called "bumpers" in catalogs and online sites (mind you, I've always called 'em feet, but I've always gotten blank stares when I asked for feet around here). Granted, that's here in the States; I have no idea what you folks would call them down there. With a little luck, a different search term like that might help you locate something that suits you.

Thanks Grey,

Knowing precisely what to call a part is a PITA for all of us; is it a box, an enclosure, or a case? Some even call feet 'pucks'.

Anyone else got any ideas? I've googled exhaustively, not much to report......

Cheers,

Hugh

I just recently (within the last week or so) ran across someone having large-ish feet like that, but can't remember who at the moment. ApexJr, MPJA...someone like that. I'll try to remember. Time for this tired little puppy to roll into bed. All my brain cells have punched their time cards and gone home and I'm no use to anyone in this condition.

Default chassis feet

ASKA

A quick search:

Richco SVF-1
or Richco BF (Big Foot)

See Richco Web Site
http://www.richco-inc.com

Perhaps search google with "components and fasteners"

Other manufactures to try?
Heyco
H H Smith
W M Berg
i.e. electronic hardware stuff.

I'd love to make a joke in this thread like, "remember they have to be wooden pyramids!!!!", but knowing some of the people lurking, they'd take it seriously...

Hugh, have you looked at Jaycar's HP0834? Not particularly cheap at their retail stores, but they might be cheaper if you bought them in large quantites from their wholesale arm (which I forget the name of).

Thanks Jason,

Yes, that's the sort of thing I'm after, no question. However, I have a rough idea what these things cost in quantity - I've done a bit of business with Jaycar - and so I'll decamp the search to Taiwan!

Thanks for the tip!

Cheers,

Hugh
