    Heads-up on hole size

    Posted by Unknown on 27th Feb 2017

    You can fit these in a 24/28mm hole, but have to use the provided spacer, which makes the buttons stick out about 1cm from the control panel. To fit these so the bezel is flush with the control panel, you need 40mm holes. You will also need to cut off a small notch of plastic from the button housing, or cut a matching notch in your control panel holes. Also, the buttons feel a bit clunky with cheap micro switches, so I recommend you spend a couple of quid extra, and get good quality ones.

    Perfect for my application

    Used on my virtual pinball project. Looks very nice and makes a real pinball effect. A little remark, it is not like the other buttons I ordered (lack of chrome aspect). But still OK
