Default Noble Pots, 50K Dual for sale (the good one)

The previous thread on these was getting kind of busy so here is a new one.

I had about 60 of these leftover from a contract job of many years ago. I have sold 45 of them here at DIY in the last few weeks and there are currently 15 up for grabs.

They are Noble, 50K, Dual, Audio Taper, D Shaft, 31 Detents, Metal Case, PC mount. Includes washer and nut. These are new "audiophile" quality pots and have a nice smooth feel to them.

See photo:

The fourth terminal is unconnected - it is NOT a loudness tap.

The price is $20 each.

Shipping is as follows:

U.S. and Canada - $4 uninsured for up to 4 pots.

Overseas (Down Under, Europe, Asia)
$7 uninsured for up to 2 pots.

$17 insured for up to 2 pots. Since the value must be declared for insurance it is self defeating for you to ask that I underdeclare on the customs form.

I can take paypal.

If there are any questions or to check on current availability, email me.

You're welcome.

By the way, you say they have a D shaft, but the photo shows what I'd call a slotted shaft (a D shaft to me is one with half the shaft flatted). Is the shaft shown in the photo what you're calling a D shaft?

Oh, and do you know what the indexing angle is for the detents?

Thanks.

I don't remember where that photo came from. I didn't take it. It's the same pot, just a different shaft. The photo is reversed left to right as well- must have happened in the transporter; lucky it didn't turn it inside out as well. The pots I'm offering do have a D shaft, not slotted.

My best guess on the indexing angle is 10 degrees.

Thanks for testing me on my shaft identification skills.

I was afraid of that. I hate D shafts. Oh well. My fault for assuming the photograph was of the actual pots you were selling.

Thanks. I need to know exactly what it is though. I think we still have an old Noble catalog over at Coda. If not I'll try Michael Percy.

Anyways if they are good.....do you still have some left?

Re: Tracking

The wiper of both elements of a randomly selected pot are within 1 db of each other over the entire range.

To avoid any more confusion due to the other photograph, here's the real deal which just arrived this afternoon. Thanks, Bill!

The terminals were a bit gunky after sitting around for so long but with a vinyl eraser and a little patience (be careful, the terminals bend rather easily) they cleaned up quite nicely.

The shaft by the way is 6mm, not 1/4" so there will be a little slop if you use a 1/4" knob rather than a 6mm knob.
