Default Vishay Spectrol 10 Turn Prescision Potentiometers 5K Linear

Selling in pairs: 5 Kohm linear, 10 turn wire wound precision potentiometers.

Good quality, Vishay Spectrol, these were around £20 each when new from RS.

These are used, but have only been exposed to 20mA max in service, at 24V.

I will test each one with a multimeter, through its range before posting.

I have a few pairs to sell, the photo is illustrative of the others.

Cost: £15.00 per pair inclusive of UK postage, payment by PayPal. Please indicate interest here and PM me for the details!

Will offer a discount on multiple purchases due to combined postage, please contact to arrange.

Cheers, Scott

Pots arrived thanks Scott. Excellent quality. Can recommend them. I’m going to replace the master gain pot on my fender guitar amp which is way too sensitive. Turn it a few degrees and it’s unbearable loud ( or am I just getting old?)

I have used the identical model 10 turn pots (though possibly different value) to replace the worn out voltage control pots on a Farnell bench power supply. They fit perfectly and with a considerably finer control setting of the output voltage compared to the standard 3/4 turn pots.

My main use for these is in prototyping, when trying to determine a resistor value, I just attach one with leads to the circuit and use it a s a trimmer, then replace with the ideal resistor value - ie: a cheap alternative to a decade box!

Having the accurate control over the resistance is brilliant.

Cheers, Scott

I got mine - superb quality. One will go in the output of my Gould J3B to give fine output level control - which needs a 5k pot, and the single turn one in there is far too coarse.

I still have some of these available at the same fee of £15 for two (as it would be unfair on previous buyers to reduce this deal), but now with the added deals for increased quantities:

x2 = £15
x3 = £19
x4 = £23
x5 = £26

Prices include UK postageand packing, paypal only. Please PM for details.

Cheers, Scott

These are still available.

I'll try my hand at "salesman patter":

- They are very lovely pots. Go-on, it's nearly Christmas.

Did it work?

Some lovely pots still available! Many happy, and even some delighted new owners have given them new homes, and put them to good use.

I will also be happy to sell as single pots for £8.50 including postage.

Cheers, Scott
