Default Blore-Edwards Summer Sale (Pots)

Blore-Edwards are having their "Summer Sale". About 20% off pots.
I have used them in the past as they are reasonably priced and can do "specials" (like log/antilog dual-gang), very useful for older equipment.

https://www.blore-ed.com/shop?utm_ca...&utm_source=so
No commercial link to them just a happy customer. Ask for Brett Crier if you have a special requirement. He's been very helpful to me.

They are excellent, I dont need anything at the moment but will keep them in mind.

Pity they cant do tapped volume controls.

They used to do tapped controls, but apparently no longer have the dies. But it would be worthwhile asking them again.

"Pity they cant do tapped volume controls."
