0.9" Long x 0.2" Wide Electronics Spacer
« on: December 07, 2004, 05:54:09 PM »

If you don't know what a spacer is, it's kind of like a long nut.

I have absolutely no idea where to look for one of these... I tried googling and didn't find anything.  Does anyone know any good online stores where I can buy this?

What about getting a piece of brass or plastic tubing and tapping it as necessary, if you can't find the right sort.  The small diameters you'd like are probably available in a hobby shop.

The sticky is always a good place to look.

I know Digikey has a wide selection of spacers.  Just go to their page, type in "spacer"; under "hardware/accessories", click "spacers/standoffs" and go from there.

If Digikey doesn't have what you want, you can always try McMaster.

Sorry for posting something that was on a sticky.  Thank you for helping me.

I think I am going to go with the 1" Plastic Hex Spacer (F/F) from Hobby Engineering and cut them down.

Digikey has a LOT, but I don't have much experiance with this and couldn't figure out what I wanted from there.
