a longer part that goes through chassis punchout.

I bought a 1u rack enclosure for a project but the metal they used for sides is pretty thick, a normal jack doesnt extend far enough beyond the metal.

Where can I get something like below but has a longer through punch hole base/shaft

Hello !

I've no problem with the cliff jacks for thickness up to 4mm, and I think you can still add 1mm !

The picture jack is a Neutrik/Rean jack. It comes with one washer, I would just use the jack without the washer and see if that is enough for what you need.

If you want to go for a metal jack with a long bushing, this is a good one:

Mouser part number 502-L-12B

It's the same Switchcraft jack you see everywhere, but with a longer bushing. I use them on custom Fuzz Faces because I prefer the metal jacks and the standard Switchcraft 12B bushing isn't quite long enough.

I saw the thread title and immediately thought, "that's what she said!"

But I checked the replies, and two people already beat me to it, so I won't say it.

I was going to chime in with the "that's what she said" too. Oh well..."that's what she said."
