    Looking for a small pot that has an integrated latching push-button (push on, pull off).

    Looking for ~ 30 or so units, the more compact the better.

    Context is an intercom panel for an A-10c Warthog DCS cockpit build.
    Think individual pots that twist for volume and push in/pull out for mute/un-mute.
    3 are for radios, 1 is for audio from AIM-9 missile seeker, 1 for TACAN, 1 for ILS etc..etc..

    Image of the panel these go in is attached, will take a screen cap from within the sim at a later time.

    As a plan B rotary encoders may work.

    They exist somewhere, but obviously not a super common part.

    quantity of 100 :p

    I'm not saying that''s the place he needs to go buy, but that's a pretty decent breadcrumb.

    A very very decent breadcrumb, much appreciated sir...
    After a few days on this your post was enough to find this...

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/10-Pack...Splift-Shaft-6mm/401429887473?epid=1745074498

    Same store has a variety of configurations and qty's, and the knobs they list might even be close enough to pass as well.
