Default A simple tiny PCb for those little alpha pots

I designed this little PCB for those killer alpha pots you can get from Jaycar.

I have not tried it yet.

Mostly I wanted the board to avoid having to solder wire directly to the tiny pot, but also because I wanted a place for a resistor on input since for even some of my unity gain headphone amps some of my soures are too hot.

Cheers!
Russ

Can you change it to have input and output jumpers, rather than left and right jumpers? Oh, and some mounting holes?

Looks good. Thanks.

What about tightening up the layout a bit and adding mounting holes?

And we should start updating the wiki more, it seems a little out of date.

Is there a diyaudio ftp somewhere for linking to stuff on the wiki? or should we link to the forums? I would use my host, but in 5 years you'll just see 404 not found errors.
