Were those the smaller ones for the 4-LED board

These are the original large LEDs, I don't think we could get anyone to cough up those part numbers I actually used the big ones to make my 4 LED board.

nah, the only real difference is that the Mk II is surface mount and the mk IIa is thru hole. OK, so the mk IIa also has a keyed shaft and is from a different manufacturer, but electrically they are the same. If you are really clever you could probably fit a mk IIa switch to a mk II as the pin pitches are the same ...

Thanks Rob, i will. So what's the official/nonofficial support email now anyway? The FAQ still says carsupport@sonicblue.com, but is that still active? And other posts people are saying they emailed support@empeg.com. Bueller?

Thanks Hugo. I couldn't find it in the Farnell catalogue. Looks like it's one of these though:

I'm told that both of those addresses still work. Until I'm officially told otherwise, the FAQ is still correct.

Can anyone verify the size of the fascia hex socket cap screws? I believe they are M2.5x10. Is this correct?

Also, has the parts list been added to the FAQ or is this thread the most recent info?

Bueller...Bueller...?

Does anyone know of a source for these? I need 4 new screws and Paul needs one. A few spares wouldn't hurt either.

Maryland Metrics apparantly don't sell black oxide 2.5x10, only plain steel.
Ditto for MSC Industrial Supply.
Fastenal's only metric hex screws are in expensive kits with a minimum size of M4. Didn't even bother to check finish.
Digikey don't sell any metric black oxide.

Next!?

I'm fairly certain the empegs fascia screws were painted black specifically for empeg.

Ah yes...

I purchase an M2.5x6 DIN912 SHCS from Metric Screw and Tool Co. ($25 min. order) with a black oxide finish 1-800-METRIC1.

Also, Metric & Multistandard. http://www.metricmcc.com/

Search under Metric Item Only for 912 (the DIN #)

I'd be very suprized to see a bright zinc or uncoated steel socket head cap screw in that size. Stainless and High-Tensile would be more standard.

Here's the link for Mcmaster-Carr for these. They can be found in alloy steel and stainless steel. They do not appear to have black oxide.

I ordered the M2.5x10mm from McMaster Carr. After re-measuring the original socket head cap screws instead of the ones provided by 303 with my new face, I believe the originals were 12mm. I don't expect it will make much difference but thought I'd posit it.

On to HD screws, the originals were M3 but what length. I've ordered both 6mm and 8mm. Any idea if these are correct or not? Below are details from the order.

91801A151
Metric 316 SS Flat Head Phil Machine Screw M3 Size, 6mm Length, .5mm Pitch, Packs of 100, $6.76

91801A154
Metric 316 SS Flat Head Phil Machine Screw M3 Size, 8mm Length, .5mm Pitch, Packs of 100, $6.71

92290A060
Metric 316 SS Socket Head Cap Screw M2.5 Thread, 10mm Length, .45mm Pitch, Packs of 50, $6.88

Well, I searched this thread, but didn't find the answer to my question:
Where can I get a replacement screw for the connector on the back of the empeg?
My wife's lost one of its two screws, and I know they're very specific parts, as they allow some slop on the connector. Anyone know where I can get a couple replacements?

You could use a regular screw (as long as it was the right length) and just not screw it down all the way. Loctite the hell out of it, and you should be good to go.

Be careful using the empeg without one of the screws. It's a great way to get your empeg stuck in the sled, which in turn is a great way to break the handle trying to get it out.

Yea I found that out the hard way. It was ok for a while then one day it was jammed in good. I wiggled and pulled and then the handle snapped and even then the empeg didnt pop out. I have since drilled a hole in the two parts of the handle and glued in a needle. That helps hold it together til I can find a replacement handle. Just spend the $5 for the connector and 2 screws. I ordered mine the day before I broke the handle.

Does anyone have the part numbers and source that carries the blue and white button switches that connect to the display board and hold the lights and (stock) grey buttons? I want to buy a few so I can send them to molding companies to help determine the "tolerances" for the translucent buttons that are in progress. Thanks.

There is a dimensional PDF downloadable from both Farnell and the original manufacturer (ALPS, I think).

ADDA 40x10mm 4.7cfm 17dB(A)



Apparently, the ADDA AD0412MS-G70 40x10mm oil-impregnated sleeve bearing fan is not 17dB(A) 4.7cfm, but 21dB(A) 5.8cfm. The incorrect specifications are widely reported on websites but ADDAs own datasheet confirms the correct values. Rapid Electronics 37-0882, ~4.50.

There is also the AD0412MX-G70 40x10mm 12v 5.7cfm 19dB(A) brushless with hypro-bearing. Mouser 664-D4010MX-12V, ~$9.
