Steve @ Apex Jr, Are either of these pots conductive plastic, or are both carbon?

Taper I do not know
Panel Mount
3/8" Bushing
5/8" long metal shaft
1/4" Shaft
There not expensive and probably worth a try

thanks

audio taper is about 20% of max resistance at center
linear is 50% at center

mismatch between the 2 sections seperates the Quality from the chaff
say at 1/4 and 1/2 positions
