Default Vampire BFBP

I wanted to have a nice thumb screw style binding post on my upcoming DIY amps similar to the fantastic posts found on Mark Levinson gear. The closest thing I could find to ML's post is the Vampire BFBP. There seems to be little or no online data for the BFBP, so on whim, I bought a pair to check them out. Here's how the Vampire BFBP shapes up:

Cost around $30 per pair. Overall dimensions 65 mm long closed and 68 mm long opened. 4.5 turns closed to open. Thumb portion 40 mm wide. Not a true 5 way binding post. Only accepts spades. Appears to require a 14 mm square hole in the chassis with maximum chassis thickness of 10 mm.

Subjective parts quality is good--probably not on par with WBT posts, but these are significantly cheaper.

Likes: Thumb wheel operation for binding post

Dislikes: Isolation bushing is a little shy on beefiness where it counts. Only one millimeter distance separates conductive binding post from chassis. Will need to buy a punch to install them reliable.
