Yes, I just wanted to ask ... concerning volume knob you used, are there sort of "special" kind of?
Or ???

(BTW : Did you make the front plate by yourself? Or is it Schaefferised?)

The knobs all of them are furniture knobs nothing special.
The front plate made by me if you look closer maybe you see some details...
I use a router with special bit for alu, jigsaw and file.
For the screen and ir sensor i use 5mm "brown plexiglass".

Indeed I can't determine how you fixed the push knob to the push button on the uC board ... glue?

the rectangular piece of alu dimension is 1cm by 2cm and 18cm long,
i drill in one "2cm face" 3 holes of 3mm dia (two in the edge one in the middle) in order to attach in the front panel drill (blind hole)and tap for
M3 screw i make also 6 holes 8mm dia for the knobs and the springs.
in the other 2cm side i make 6 holes 3mm dia just for the screws M3 attach them in the knobs (drill and tap the neck of the knobs after the cut of the neck leave aprox 1cm long) with the M3 screws in the knobs you can adjust the gap between the buttons of the pcb and the knobs also hold the knobs in position.
between the front plate and the piece of alu i put 1 rondell this space between of them is the "travel" of the knobs.
after that i marked the support holes of the pcb in the in the same piece alu drill and tap for M3 screws. in the picture is the black spacers.

Thanks for detailled description

Just one last question/confirmation : the spring goes through the 8mm hole to meet the inner side of the knob, right?

I think I will give it a try....

And the fact that your knobs are plain furniture knob will make them easily available I guess...
Good idea
THX
