    "two mounting holes on top" ... to mount with what? m3 screw doesnt fit; is it m1, m2 or m2.5?

    The photo shows 3 terminals and different mounting tabs than are shown in the PDF spec sheet, which shows 6 terminals (2 duplicates for each terminal) - can you confirm which of the two is actually correct?

    Are there any knobs available for the slider?

    The pinout for this is as follows: Pins 1 & 3 are positive/ground, and pin 2 is the analog wiper. This component doesn't care which end is positive and which is ground, but reversing these will also reverse the direction/value of the wiper.

    I'm guessing that I could use this as a replacement slide pot on the SF Digital Sandbox, correct? I see it has the same dimensions.

    How are these wired please?

    Could this be used as a crossfader? I see there are pins on either end of the slider -- if I hooked up two audio channels, would it apply, e.g. 0K resistance to one and 20K to the other?
