knurled, solder-lug, reverse-log tapered pots?
« on: May 24, 2016, 10:44:13 AM »
Do they exist?

I can't seem to find this hardware combination at any of the usual sources (smallbear, BLMS, PPP, mammoth, mouser).

Alternatively, I do have some knurled 16mm PCB MOUNT (right-angle) pots that are log-tapered. Any advice on using them as a soldered pot in a one-knob 1590a build?

The pinout is the same, Just solder your wires to the pcb pins as though they are lugs. You can bend the pins down into little loops to save space, but the lug type is irrelevant to function.

Thanks, Torgoslayer I knew it would function the same, but wondered if there were any particular risks to shorting out, etc. bending the pins might help...
