For a while now, i wanted to make a testing mount for potentiometers right after seeing the potentiometer mount from small bear electronics http://www.smallbear-electronics.mybigcommerce.com/kit-build-an-idea-board/. which then lead me to making a mount for rotary switches. Which will now going to lead me to (probably) making mounts for other screw mount buttons, and switches.

here are the fruits of my labor.

looks very nice Very Happy
Is that lasercut or drilled by hand ?

To connect the pots you could use screwterminals (like these) with some wires soldered to them for a better connection.
Or instead of soldering directly to the screwterminal you could put them on a smal piece of perfboard connected to pin-headers.

It was drilled with a corded hand held drill. I first made a template, printed it, taped it, and finally drilled the acrylic sheet. Used some drill bits made for plastic. Bought the bits and acrylic assortment from delvie plastics. Btw, I might try that idea.

ah, that probably helps Laughing
I had some mixed results myself, if the drill bits are too sharp they tend to bite into the plasic causing it to crack,
if they are too dull the plastic just melts. I don't need them often but maybe I should get some proper bits for plastic.

Don't buy them from Amazon. The sellers on there will rip you off. I would suggest getting the entire set from either the place I mentioned in my previous reply or somewhere else. You can also buy a random assortment of acrylic glass for not too much on there.
