PART FINDER FRIDAY – Potentiometers! We spent a lot of time trying to find a good panel mount potentiometer for a good price. These should satisfy nearly any project’s needs. They come in a few different values and in both linear & audio log taper. The ones with pins plug into breadboard, the ones with solder lugs are easier to free-solder. Mouser carries a bunch, Digikey has a few as well.
We have the most commonly used value, a 10K linear taper, in the shop.
