#1: FOAK: Speaker binding posts

Posted on 2006-07-23 21:32:37 by the.best.names.are.gone

Now that the dust is settling after the house move I finally got to set
up my stereo in the spare room. The speakers (Acoustic Energy 120s) are
tri-wireable and it appears that little fingers have made off with a
selection of the knobs off of the binding posts. 8 out of the 12, to be
exact.

I was going to pop some nuts on as a stopgap [1] but nothing that I had
lying around seems to fit. Any ideas if these things tend to be
standard and, if so, what thread am I looking for?

Should I just be resigned to a trip to the dealer after my hols?

[1]Stopgap? Yeah, right.

Likely an M5 or 6 thread. CPC/Farnells or RS would have the missing
screw-ons.

I think that's the thread on the mounting post. It's the top nut I'm
after and the hole's 4mm so it must be bigger than that. Cheers anyway.

That might be the very dab. It looks like fixing it properly might be
the best answer.

If it's a 4mm hole then it's an M5 thread because (working from memory
here) the tapping size for M5 is 4.2mm

Any tool supplier will be able to sell you standard M5 nuts from
stock.
