no standard, actually. and this is one of the main problems when sourcing parts from stock.

I found potentiometers, sockets, and toggle switches that match. I think I found momentaries too, just waiting for the samples to arrive. it took me a lot of time reviewing catalogues and web-sites. now I am looking for slide switches or rotaries (they have to fit in the .8in front panel grit, too).

anyways, I think for eurorack you are looking for the 10mm-12mm range (PCB surface to panel).

just my 2 pence
