    wow, rated life is 100 cycles. hope you don't have too much tweaking to do...

  • Oh, and how does it work with only 2 leads? I might be missing one of them in the picture...

      They have three leads. power, ground and brush (the one you read the value from)

  • Wait - Single turn means it doesn't rotate more than 360 degrees, right? Cause most people need to be able to adjust these a few times...

    whats the ratings on these? V/A max?

    Try flattening out the legs and twisting them 90 degrees.

  • note that without bending/trimming the legs this one may "jump" out of a breadboard.
