The potentiometer/SPST is fine. But I'd like to let others who referb old radios and the like. I had to replace the pot in a 1947 Sentinel table radio. The original has a split shaft to mount the knob and was about 1/2" longer that this part. Using a hacksaw and a "Dremel" tool with a diamond wheel I cut the old shaft off the defective pot. Then I made a key on the old shaft and a notch in the new pot's shaft. Of course retaining the original shaft's length. Then I drilled a 1/16" hole crosswise and inserted a piece of copper wire as a rivet. Finally coating the joint with a two part epoxy. Voila' the problem is solved! I wish I had photographed this procedure for you all.

this company is one of very few which still carry these pots. They are easily modified to fit a variety of the older radios which I restore. They perform as well as the original pots.

These are A-1 pots. Better than some I have bought elsewhere.

Worked perfect on my Hallicrafters S-38C. - February 26th, 2015

New pot with switch was just what I needed for my 1942 Philco PT-2 radio. I ground down the aluminum shaft to make it have the needed "D" shape so the knob would slide on.

I bought this to replace a broken control for a radio circa 1931. The aluminum shaft was easy to cut to length and to make a D-cut in with simple hand tools.

great price and a very close match for a radio made 65 years ago.

These pots are great. When switched on, resistance reads 0 ohms, the way it should.

I had bought another mfg pot from another supply company. Their pots did not go to zero ohms when the switch turned on. It went to a resistance which allowed audio to pass at a very high volume. I had to throw all the ones I bought into the trash...
