500K CTS sealed 283 premium pot, special Allparts audio taper, split shaft, with hardware
Great pot, grounding is done with shild tails
Take the Apllarts shielded cable(s) and cut a bit long. Take a soldering tool with a sharp point and use it like a mini Marlinspike. Make a hole carefully 1/2'' back from the end without tearing any strands. Hook the center conductors and yank those through the hole. If you are jumpering to a tone pot or selector switch use shielded cable prepared the same way. Your shield tails will still be braided with no wild strands to short out. Solder the shields together like a ground bus and tag you ground to the shields. Easy! Or you can buy bare solid wire to use as a ground bus. Try to avoid too many if any loops in the ground. Some plastic pots and switches have a metal crimp tab on the side that is grounded to the shaft and bushing. You can use that too. These are great, last long and don''t get scratchy. Watch how much heat you use carefully! ENJOY!Reviewed by: Seth Burgin from Phoenix, AZ United States. on 8/8/2012 8:34:00 PM
SEALED CTS POTS
Yep, they do make some great POTs but this sealed one with plastic, DOES it have a bottom thats the metal of the POT? If not just where should someone solder a ground or other connection to the Actual POT that doesnt connect to one of the three?Reviewed by: dave johnson from Arlington, TX United States. on 12/10/2011 5:30:00 PM
