A Great Deal on 10k Linear Pots

Postby JosephMax » Wed Oct 05, 2011 7:11 am

10k ohm linear potentiometers for US$1.00 each.

They have 24mm diameter bodies, so they're great for fitting into small boxes. I just ordered a dozen.

Thanks for the link? Are they carbon track or wirewound? I assume from the price they are carbon track.

Yeah, carbon track. Though I prefer wirewound, I'm going to use these for the Delawarr 9-Dial repro I'm building. It's what Delawarr used in the original, so I'm keeping the basic circuit the same. More on that project in another thread.

It sounds interesting. Definitely keep us posted on that project. I tested several types of carbon track pots. They act as variable inductors, variable capacitors, and of course variable resistors. Naturally, they are built to work as resistors, but they do have the former underlying characteristics, in varying accuracies dependent on the model.

Thank you Joseph, just bought a bunch of them. Hope they were the right kind for the radionics machine I'm building.
