FourKnobs

We have four knobs for you today — Taller & Shorter Slim Metal Potentiometer, Solid Machined Metal, and Scrubber for Rotary Encoder!

Slim Metal Potentiometer Knob – 10mm Diameter x 10mm – T18: This slim and modern potentiometer is small and compact, yet looks good and has a nice feel. We hand selected the best knobs for your project in different sizes and varieties. This one is the Slim Metal Knob 10mm diameter x 10mm Tall (T18 Splines).

It’s a brushed aluminum knob with a shiny black (anodized?) coating. It kind of looks like the type of knob you’d find in a very fancy, modern kitchen. There’s a silver mark on the black finish so you can know where you are and figure out where you’re going. It’s a good knob if you’re looking for something basic and subtle and it’s super tiny and subdued. We also have a taller version in the same style.

This knob will not work on our Rotary Encoder (which has a D shaft)! It will work, however, on all of our Potentiometers (which have T18 shafts) (read more)

Solid Machined Metal Knob – 1″ Diameter: This is really the fanciest, best feeling knob we’ve ever seen. Using this knob sort of reminded us of driving along the Amalfi coast in a perfectly restored ’65 Porsche – meaning we really, really liked it. We hand selected the best knobs for your project in different sizes and varieties. This one’s the Solid Machined Metal Knob – 1″.

It has a nice, weighted feel that spins easily and doesn’t sacrifice versatility or comfort for durability. It feels solid, much more so than a knob with a plastic inside and metal shell. There’s a grooved rubber band that fits in an indented section of the knob for easy grip and a clear white arrow on the top so you know where you’re turning to or from.

Best of all, we include a small set screw so this beautiful knob works on both our Potentiometers and Rotary Encoder making it incredibly useful whether you’re rotating to a position with a potentiometer or you just want something that rotates all the way around. (read more)

Scrubber Knob for Rotary Encoder – 35mm: Round and round it goes, this nice round “scrubber” knob is the perfect mate to a rotary encoder. It’s got a wide 34mm diameter with a nice finger groove on its face so it’s easy to turn with just one finger. It works best with our rotary encoder, just snap it on and away you go.

Please note: this knob won’t work with our potentiometers which have T18 spline shafts! While rotary encoders look similar to potentiometers, they’re actually very different. Rotary encoders rotate all the way around continuously, which is why a knob like this is handy, you can twist it around very fast.

Does not come with a rotary encoder. We also sell potentiometers in the Adafruit store and plenty of knobs to match if you’re really just a knob fanatic. (read more)
