Tektronix LA probe P6860 - Mechanical Fastener Question
« on: November 08, 2017, 09:30:16 am »

Regarding the nut bars used with the P6860 probes and the adapters, does anyone happen know the screw size/pitch of the lock down fasteners?

I only have one nut-bar and one of the holes is stripped.  I was thinking of buying some steel 'key-stock' and drilling/tapping a set of holes.  I might even try filling the stripped hole with JB Weld epoxy and retapping.  I figure I have nothing to lose.  ;D

I don't know what's inside the nutbar, but for the PCB mounted probe scenario I bought the #2-56 PCB inserts (see Digikey 36-4871CT-ND) and they seem to work fine.
