#188227 - One last bit of advice
Responding to: Oliver Sedlacek's previous message
A common occurrence with old equipment that uses a rotary pot is that they get fairly dusty. When they get real dusty they do not make a good contact and a good cleaning by submerging the pot in alcohol while spinning the pot usually cleans the contacts quite well.
