P-H54-DRESS-THRU Nut - Dress Nut, Threaded Through, For Mini Toggle Switches
Threaded through dress nuts for use with mini toggle switches. Unlike the other versions of this dress nut, this nut is not capped allowing the nut to thread past the top of the switch’s bushing. The uncapped top can be useful where internal depth is an issue such as parallel PCB mounting. These plated dress nuts feature a chamfered edge for a professional look and work on any 1/4-40 UNS threaded bushing. Two sides are flatted for use with a tool when fastening.
$0.79
P-Q1N53X Diode - Zener, 5 Watt, ±5% tolerance
5W zener diodes that are great for use in tube amps. These are commonly used to drop B+ voltages for tube modification compatibility or to create low power modes for the amp. A zener is a semiconductor device that, above a certain reverse voltage(the zener value) has a sudden rise in current. If forward biased, the diode is an ordinary rectifier. When reverse biased, it exhibits a sharp break in its current-voltage graph. Voltage across the diode remains essentially constant for any further increase of reverse current.
$0.55
P-Q1N4448 Diode - Small Signal Fast Switching, 1N4448
A semiconductor device which passes current in the forward direction(from anode to cathode), and blocks current in the opposite direction. Features
  • Silicon epitaxial planar diodes
  • Low power loss, high efficiency
  • Low leakage
  • Low forward voltage
  • High speed switching
  • High current capability
  • High reliability

Used in a variety of Fender amps. Replacement for Fender part number 0006260049
$0.15
P-Q1N400X Diode - General purpose rectifier, 1A, 1N400X
