    It seems like we all have to taste the failure of the ordinary 10 turns pot ... me too started to have some erratic spots and decided to move on to the 180 degree hall effect pot ...
    2319659-40.jpg
    So I think this idea might be good ... a worm gear 10:1 reduction gear ratio setup

    10 turns hall effect setup.jpg

    Any suggestions How this could be done ?
    A 3D printer maybe ?
