Where to find long enough pots ?

Hope I chose the right forum section for this one.
I recently modded my Cry Baby wah pedal to act as a midi
expression pedal. All I had to do was tear out the electronics
and put a 10K linear pot in there. Works as expected.

The pot itself turns out to be a problem. I can't tighten it enough
in the pedal housing because the threaded section (8 mm long) is
too short for properly screwing a nut and washer on. After long hours
of searching the net I can't seem to find any pots with longer threads.

Does anyone have any suggestions on where to find these ?

Hey you can try these guys:
http://www.smallbearelec.com/Categor...ll+Pedal+Parts or these guys
They both have pots that will fit the crybabies but you might have to email them about the lengths of the threaded section.
