Ambika Digikey Standoff Hardware

Since I live in the USA, I am unable to purchase the Ambika hardware parts from Reichelt. I have found the following standoffs at Digikey:

(12) 24394K-ND - STANDOFF HEX M3 THR BRASS 12MM
(12) 952-1503-ND - STANDOFF M/F HEX M3 BRASS 12MM
(12) 24437K-ND - STANDOFF HEX M3 THR ALUM 20MM
(12) 952-1510-ND - STANDOFF M/F HEX M3 BRASS 20MM
(4) 952-1501-ND - STANDOFF M/F HEX M3 BRASS 10MM

If someone can double check these to the Reichelt standoffs, it would be much appreciated. :slight_smile:

go for aluminum

I’m on my phone ATM and can’t check, but what was the total for you? Mine was around $50 for all hardware. Pretty sure it was digikey also.

Yu guys have to pay 50$ for a few spacers?

I paid a LOT less than that for the mounting bits. I got them from a specialist mail-order company here in the UK, Toby Electronics . I’m sure similar companies exist in the US, too.

I’d advise looking at other options before paying out such a lot of cash.

from Digikey the total is for $32.70

$32.70 before or after shipping. I think my order was $42 or so but with shipping it was closer to $50. Either way, it seems rediculous to charge that much for some spacers and some screws. I looked around and was coming up with worse prices than digikey. MacMaster Carr was twice the cost. I may have not looked long enough on digikey.

@qp $32.70 before shipping. I bought the screws and nuts from DrillSpot.com. Very reasonable prices in bulk packs of 100. The spacers are overpriced from Digikey, but I don’t know of any other options for us in the USA.

Yeah, it’s crazy how much they are. The nuts & washers at Digikey are also pretty reasonably priced in packs of 100. Welp, the hunt continues…

Guys,
I’m nearly finished with the cases ( i need to hunt for black matte Plexi :wink: ), you may order all Spacers + Nuts + Bolts together with the Case…

@fcd72 I was thinking maybe matte black, actually. Great minds, and all that. What other colours do you have planned? Did you get a chance to think about the VFD thing? I know you’re busy, don’t mind if not.

Also, gentle nudge: 4-Pole…
Just sold me EX-8000, and wouldn’t mind getting rid of the Waldorf filter, too, while I’m off work an have time to deal with parcelling it up and posting it.

@toneburst
Maybe we can make an Arrangement™

Ill do pretty much every color Evonik offers, take a look yourselves

>fcd, I was thinking a matte black w/white underlay(ala programmer), but have everything else clear. Doable? Just tell me where to send the cheese.

@qp, shure, but it will be matte black not the 3Ply from the Programmer

Ah gotcha. That’s coo. Also a clear window for the screen to be glued in. Think I read you mentioning that before. Put me down for an order.
