Holes for Happ buttons in mm?

Post by Pink » May 15th, 2013, 2:57 pm

Hi to all!
I have no any experience with the anglosaxon unit of measurement and with Happ buttons...

Can anyone tells me what is the ideal diameter for these buttons mounted on a metal control panel?

(For example some website declares that the classic sanwa obsf 30 wants an hole of 29,5 mm but it requires at least 30 mm...)

Thanks!

Happ buttons require a hole of 1 1/8" which is 28.58mm

I've used a 28mm bit in the past but IIRC they were a tight fit.

Thanks! But if i go with 30 mm holes (for high interchangeability)?

Yep, will be fine. The outer bezel of Happ buttons is 33mm (1.3") so they'll not fall through the hole.

They'll just be a little 'baggy' in the hole but they'll be fine once you tighten the nuts.
