Hi everyone, I'm trying to build a Valvecaster pedal using a 12au7 tube, but mounting the tube holder onto my metal box is proving tricky... here's the type of mount I'm using:

...but I can't seem to find any nuts/bolts that are the right size for these holes. Are there any better ways of mounting one of these to a metal case? Or is there a specific type of bolt one would use for this?

If you don't foresee dismantling in the future, have you thought of using pop-rivets? Or even epoxy?

Never thought of epoxy! I've actually got some lying around, I'll give it a try. Cheers!

Those bolts should come with the tube socket.
