Hi Gary

All sounds good.

One thing, unless you already have one, get a desolder sucker. They costs 3.39 on eBay. A small reel of desolder wick won't go amiss either as the wires soldered to the volume control, from the pictures I've seen, are wrapped around the terminals as is standard practice. Pulling them free with lots of solder splattering the printed circuit and other components will be a nightmare. Well it had been for me before I knew better!

Should there be enough "spare" then it might be possible to cut and rework the connection but be cautious if using a "Stanley" blade to trim screened cable. It is very easy to cut through the outer sheath into the screen and the same goes for the inner core.

Good luck and let the forum know how you are getting on.

Chris

A little update, the potentiometer shafts on the replacements are far too short. Dansette seemed to know that when I phoned them. There is supposed to be a new batch arriving so any potential buyers should enquire as to the correct length. I think the new ones will be made too long so you cut to size.
