Hi,

After many trys, I finally found some good eurorack blind panels made by Fischer Electronic, with a good anodise aluminium looking, monting holes that fit perfectly with Eurorack rails, many sizes available and a fair prices.

Datasheet : http://www.produktinfo.conrad.com/datenblaetter/525000-549999/541060-da-01-ml-Frontplatte_3HE6TE_de_en.pdf

In Europe, you can buy them at Conrad : http://www.conrad.com/ce/fr/product/541060/Face-avant-partielle-3HE6TE-1284x302mm-finition-argent-pour-boitier?ref=list

The problem is those panels are deep, 2.5mm, so now I'm having a bad time finding proper jack embases with panel mount I tried those ones http://www.banzaimusic.com/Jack-EH-3-5mm.html from Banzai music, but I'm wasting half of them because they are a bit too small (4mm long with a 2mm nut).

It looks like those http://www.thonk.co.uk/shop/pj301bm-3-5mm-jack-sockets-x50/ could fit. They are supposed to be 5mm long but there's a small plastic round at the beginning...

If you guys have some tips or a good source, I'll try it !

Thx, cheers,

Those Thonk jacks will definitely fit a 2.5mm panel. I have them going through 3mm acrylic panels. These jacks are also top quality.

PS. I use the hex nuts.

Good to know ! Thank you sneakthief.
Indeed, Steve from Thonk confirmed PJ301BM jack sockets work fine with 2.5 mm, and 3mm panel even. There's also a very little difference in the thickness of the hex and knurled nuts, but really an aesthetic choice. The Knurled nuts should work a little better if the jacks are very tightly spaced.
