I have been searching for an SMD Potentiometer with a control shaft, and so far this is the best option I have come up with:
4.7k ohms resistance is ideal. Very low voltage in the application.
Thing is that it is 7mm from the solder legs to the top of the case, which is really not that bad, but I would like to see if there is something similar out there, but with a smaller case.
Hence I am asking here if anyone has some suggestions.
