motorized pot with integrated LED, source?
I need to find the source for my project.
Motorized potentiometer with integrated LED.
I have found ALPS
as seen here:

there is a hole in the center of the shaft, that's where the light comes of.

Please help, finding parts numbers, manuf.

The one you're linking to looks like an Alps RK16812. If you google the datasheet or check the Alps homepage ( I think) there may be some info on the LED-equipped versions.

It's too bad allelectronics no longer carries them; $3.50 was an absolute bargain for that pot.

I doubt you will find it for that cheap if you can find it at all.

I seem to remember a guy having a lot of these for sale - I thought it was here on DIYA but I can't be sure - IIRC, he tried to remove the LED but broke the pot. Anybody remember this?
