    Im gonna start working on a variable power supply and wanted to be able to have a fine and coarse voltage potientometers. The PCB provided have three holes for the voltage adjustment potentiometer and i wanted to add that extra potentiometer. Any help? Thanks!

    What you can do depends on how your circuit looks like. Is the potentiometer used as a voltage divider or as a variable resistor? Also: what is the supposed value of the potentiometer?
    Both cases can be solved using two potentiometers, one with a large resistance (for coarse adjustment), one with a small resistance (for fine adjustment). But the required circuits would be different.
    Another option is using a precision 10.turn potentiometer which allows fine adjustmendt using only one knob.
