Re: 10 turn pots



Hi...Suggest that you purchase or find a single turn, wire wound 
pot...Digi-Key has a couple to choose from..try to get away from using 
pulleys, belts etc for the connection to the pot...use small gears if 
possible.....single turn is the way to go and they are not expensive BUT 
sometime somewhat difficult to find..

Cheers.........Lonnie (NT6B)
