SPST means single-pole, single-throw. This switch has 3 terminals: cold, wiper, hot.

Actually, he is asking about the switch portion, not the potentiometer portion. SPST does mean there are two terminals on back of body for the switch portion; it is a simple on-off switch.

Correct, the two lugs on the bottom of this pot are for the SPST portion.

There are many factors that contribute to excess noise, but using this as a power switch and volume knob is the most common application for this item, and it shouldn't add any excessive noise.

This potentiometer works very well for antique radio restoration and the price is right! Very easy to file a D slot into the shaft. Fits the knob perfectly. Thanks much!

Worked perfectly in my old, trusty MSA volume pedal. Easy to install and quiet, great sweep, and true; highly recommended.

AES is my go to spot for vintage radio parts. They have the best prices, quality, shipping and service. This part is no exception. It goes in a 1946 RCA 66X1, now it sounds great.

It is hard to find a potentiometer with a long shaft. A long shaft can be shortened and modified to fit, but a shaft too short requires more work. Electrical performance seems to be just as good as original.
