Looking for "through-hole" potentiometer

    Hi Everybody,

    Im looking for a position sensing potentiometer that has a hole in it
    where the shaft would be. It is an ordinary potentiometer but does not
    have a shaft - it gets slipped onto a shaft. If any one could help me
    locate such a thing I would be grateful.

    Friendly Regards,
    Mot

    Use "Hollow shaft Potentiometers" with google.

    Perhaps this will help: http://www.vishay.com/docs/51047/p9.pdf
    or searching for multi-gang potentiometer, multi-section
    potentiometer. You might be able to get some samples of the
    individual sections which appears to be what you are looking for.

    If you just need one, here's a thought. Most older radios and tv sets
    had mult-gang or at least resistance element plus power switch pots.
    Look for the kind that mounted to a real chassis or panel with a real
    mounting nut. These can often be dismantled removing the switch,
    shaft or sections. The best would be a removable section where the
    shaft itself isn't providing the wiper force. Try a local thrift
    shop, TV repair shop (preferably one that has been around a while) or
    friendly neighborhood ham radio operator (preferably one who has been
    around a while). Hopefully you'll find the resistance value and taper
    (linear?, audio?, reverse audio?) that you're looking for.
