Pot Chiclets - Spectrol 148/149 and Bourns Type 91 potentiometer DIY aid

Pot Chiclets image


Pot Chiclets are small printed circuit boards to aid in assembly of MOTM format kits with Spectrol 148/149 or 248/249, Bourns Type 91 potentiometers and other 3 pin 0.1" spaced PCB mount pots.

No more painstaking and time consuming J lead preparation and heat shrink is required! Free standing Spectrol pots without PC board mounting pad locations typically require bending and forming the pins into J leads, doing the same to the wires to be attached, hooking the two J leads then soldering each pin/wire together, hoping you didn't forget to add heatshrink over the wire before soldering. With Pot Chiclets, simply solder your potentiometer to the PC board, then solder wires to the PC board. You're done! Boards are professionally manufactured, silk screened, double sided copper with plated through holes and solder mask.
