Hi Les,

Are these Linear or log Pots?

If they are Linear, I would like to be considered for these.

Do log wire-wound pots exist?
I suppose a crude approximation could be made with two or three linear sections of different slope.

I've no idea.

I've not thought about it.
Just seems an important question to ask.
Can be a bit of a PITA if you get the wrong type.

I've seen log wire wound pots before, it used several different sizes wires and wound onto a taper.

Non-linear wirewound pots were used in early 30's radios for volume control wound on tapered formers, not sure what law they gave.
