I’m wondering what the advantages of brass spacers are? Nylon seems like a great choice, with relatively low conductivity, and it seems to offer good durability even on the threads.
The only issue I’m having is they seem to be inconsistently sized, and I have an awful time fitting them into the screw wells on the Pi Zeros and pHATs. I just recently finished up my Pirate Radio, and wanted to put some swanky new spacers in to keep that Pi Zero from twisting when the power cord is taken in an out. I feel like it might be putting strain on the GPIO array, and over time that will start to give way.
I picked up two bundles of nylon spacers from a local electronics store, and both are junk, being slightly too big for the screw holes on the Pi Zero and pHAT. So, I’m in the market for a trusted source to order a bulk amount of spacers, if anyone has a supplier in mind. I’m in the US, if that makes any difference.
