I have 2 500k audio pots from allparts. Are all of these holes drilled for the pots, the same size drill bit?

And would it be the same for the switch selector? Btw I'm using a 3 way switch, the circle one, not the long 5 switch selector. Thank you

i'm going to say that a 3/8 is good for the pots. but they are all different.

neither is great. The Fender is bad though, unlike the Behringer which sounds so bad that it makes you want to stab out your own eardrums with a blunt pencil . hope that was helpful.

Would this be ok for a volume knob?

Yes, and the box should say what size drill bit is needed. Or just size them up. Its not hard.

yeah, drill smaller than what you think is right and then if you need bigger, get a little bigger each time. as long as the nut can cover the edges of the hole, you're good.

standard pot shafts are 1/4 inch, but that doesn't take into account the threading, so 3/8 should work.
