Can anyone explain how to (or where to find instructions) build an
accurate linear slide potentiometer of 100k, 150k or 1M ohm? I am
looking to make one with a physical length would be from 2" to 10". I
have seen little exercises where you can draw a pencil line on paper
and connect electrodes to it, and it acts as a resistor, so I am
thinking that building a slide pot might be possible with the right
materials. Any info appreciated...
Take a pot with a 3" travel and use a lever and pivot to change the
range required to move the pot 3 inches . . .
