John,

I need a 5-meg one, 15 would be more than the entire string. I suppose I could make some circuit changes, but for right now I'm going to try and put it back how it should be. I sent mark an email, let's see what he says. If I can't locate they right value, I'll have no choice but to pick either a 1 or 15 meg pot.

You could put some resistance in parallel with a 15M to get it down around 5M.

Nick,
What did the original pot look like? I've got some HV CTS pots here that are phenolic and about 2 1/2" in diameter.

No idea, it didn't have a focus control. There was just a string of fixed resistors, so I'm tasked with installing one.

The black one measures 15M. The brown one says 6M but measures about 4M. The shafts are not connected to any terminal.

Any way I could get you to send me the 4 meg one? No luck with Oppat yet.

Darryl,

Got the control and cleaned it out with some deoxit, looks like it's gonna work! I'll have to play with the values in the string, but I won't be able to mess with it for the next couple weeks due to work. More when I get back to it, I owe you a sip of beer when we meet up again!
