    Here's the datasheet.

    Really all you need is a compatible one*. Looks like it's a 5K pot, 24mm diameter, 30mm shaft length.

    Have a gander on Farnell and RS.

    *Actually, what's it even for?
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    Re: Help with potentiometer

    hello GEB

    from that datasheet/pdf it says

    Adjustment Travel .. 280 deg

    Mechanical Travel .. 300 deg



    EDIT: heres a quick drawing to illustrate, GEB will be able to explain how it works better than i can.
    1st TYPE


    the pots that you buy in the shop/over the counter, the tracks inside, where it reads the K reading from are active all the way around for the full 300deg (the one steve linked to), like so:
    2nd TYPE


    What GEB is after is the 1st type, where the track only extends 30-40deg each way from the midpoint, we only need a small amount of travel to be able to get from 0k up to 5K. as it is for the wigwags on moblity scooters - the lever you control with your hand to make them go forward and backwards.
