    G'Day all.
    I'm trying to locate some 10k slide potentiometers. DS, Jaycar, altronics
    don't sell them anymore.
    Farnell sells them for about $7-00 each. (Is that the going rate, or can I
    get better. I need 8.
    Thanks in advance.

    price. Have a look at

    ** A few useful slide pots there for low prices.

    Note:

    Rockby have not specific the "travel" distance the standard way. Instead of
    the actual distance it moves, they seem to have measured the length of the
    slot in the top.

    Eg: 55mm travel is really 50mm & 114mm travel is really 100mm - ie the
    industry standard sizes.

    Thanks to all who replied. Regarding Futurlec, I wish I knew about the
    sliders in the roatry section. I have an order currently with them (2weeks
    ago and still waiting).
    Thanks again.
    Rob.
