[Boatanchors] Long Threaded Shafts

Gary if you can find a pot that fits the hole in the chassis properly but 
has a long shaft that can either reach through the second hole and is so 
long that it can be cut, then you could use the one with the short threaded 
length and put the nut on the chassis.

I hope you understand my meaning.  I happen to have owned an Apache and know 
what you are facing with the front panel spaced out from the chassis.

The Apache and Mohawk and possibly other Heathkits use pots with a 9/16
threaded shaft.  The pots available now do not have that amount of threaded
length.  The original pot is not available.  Has anyone developed a way to
adapt a current pot to the required 9/16 length needed to get through the
chassis, panel, etc?

Hopefully my question is clear.

Thanks in advance.
