Nikolas;

I'm not sure about the thread but it is 12mm (11.7mm) for the cover and 7.8mm for the smaller thread. That makes me think about a M12 for the cover but the thread seems pretty close one another to be M12.
But as you see I'm no specialist.
The fact that the real cover goes on it, and I guess the real cover is imperial and not metric, makes it probably metric but close to an imperial value.
Indeed, the cover fits but can't be screwed to the end of the thread.


Quote from: "Charos"
Looking great there, RD. One question about these:



What's the thread for the cover? I think I'm going to make some.

Surfin,

I don't know yet about La fert? :)

I'm slowly interfacing panel by panel with Xkeys. It's doing well but Loulou 'kit is helping me greatly.
It's a kit of PCB with a motherboard and the possibility to connect 8 smaller Pcbs to connect the pushbuttons, toggles, rotary switches...
The Motherboard is designed to connect 2 smaller PCB for the frontpanels and 3 PCBs on each side of the cockpit (for the dide consoles.)

Only a 20 wires Computer cable is running from one PCB to another since they are chained and it really ease up the wiring of the cockpit.



Loulou supplied me the raw PCBs and the manual, once the components have been sourced (leds, connectors, ...) the PCB holes are made with the proxxon and the soldering can start.


Once done, the smaller PCBs are connected to the motherboard and the buttons can be connected on the smaller PCB. Each position is marked according to the raw# and column# so it's really easy to program the Xkey with macrorecorder.


Finally, a picture of the motherboard already installed in the cockpit


Thanks Loulou  :D
