    I'm just looking to plug the hole - neither I nor my computer do constant ppO2.

    I'll see how it goes with the 1.5mm and let you know.

    Are you just wanting to plug the hole?

    Just done some searching and Fischer quote M14 x 1mm for a lot of the panel mounts - see http://www.farnell.com/datasheets/1271240.pdf page 34 onwards

    So. I got my beautifully made M141.5mm delrin blanking plug and now I know that the way you measure blanking plug sizes isn't the way I thought.

    I've got an M141.5mm blanking plug for sale if anybody's interested.

    Have to ask - how did you measure it?

    I've done some googling and I'm pretty sure that the connector is M14 x 1.
    The bicycle parts I linked to are probably the cheapest way of making certain.

    I eyeballed the thread pitch and got that right and I used a vernier calliper on the inside of the hole and read 14ish mm. Apparently I should have taken into account the depth of the threads.

    Live and learn, hey?

    I later learned that the particular housing I have had a cable gland in place of a fischer connector.

    So probably M16 x 1 or M16 x 1.5?

    M16 x 1.5 is a standard cable gland size - a standard off the shelf blanking plug is as on the left below, right hand one is an M12 stainless one

    The 1.5mm threads seem to fit and the officially 14mm plug I have slides easily into the hole so 161.5mm seems likely, yeah.
