    I'm looking for a very low-profile trimmer pot (since it has limits)
    that will be used for a knob that will be used a lot.

    An encoder would've been nice but they keep turning and they're also
    hard to find in this size:

    It needs to be 6mm or less body width, height not including shaft a
    half inch or less, shaft diameter close to 1/8" or less.
    resistance figures doesn't matter. just long life. all i can find is
    200 cycle rotational life and that is ridiculously low.

    Unless there's an encoder out there with limits on it in that size.

    Get a conductive plastic type, and be prepared to pay a lot.
    I have used some with ~10 milion cycles, but the aint cheap.
    (and they aint small).
    Else use a shaft incremental encoder with an up/down counter and ado.
