30mm travel slide pots

Postby jpshea » Tue May 31, 2011 8:18 am

Hi Folks,

Greetings from Brisbane. I'm trying to source the following vintage parts (new, NOS or re-used) for a Pearl SY-1 Syncussion:

1x 500K log mono slide potentiometer - 30mm travel (metal shaft)
1x 100K log mono slide potentiometer - 30mm travel (metal shaft)
1x 100K linear mono slide potentiometer - 30mm travel (metal shaft)

The body is 8mm W x 45mm L x 13mm H, with a 15mm metal shaft. I'm happy to do a bit of surgey on the PCB btw to fit terminal spacing.

I'm also looking for a set of 16 "wide" style slider knobs (e.g. around 12mm across in a blade style, and not in a "squashed" fader style), just like these ones:

Any advice very much appreciated, have tried the ususal suspects including RS, Farnell, Digikey, Mouser, Maplin etc. (and have active eBay saved searches on the prowl...).

Regards,
JPS

can you repair the old ones? ie, take apart, wash out, re-lube and put back together?

Bingo! eBay saved search success. Picked up some new 30mm travel Panasonic 110K and 500K slide pots (data sheet: http://www.panasonic.com/industrial/components/pdf/aol0000ce2.pdf ) from this seller:

By a remarkable co-incidence, I happened to be in the States @ the time (US-only shipping) and got them posted to the hotel!

The PCB will need a bit of surgery tho to fit the pins/mounting pins, and I may need to glue in some brackets to the top of the PCB for support (the existing ones are all screwed to a common top support bar, and the Panasonics don't have a threaded hole at each end). The new ones are not quite as tall, but have a longer shaft to make up for this.

Regards,
JPS
