Why replace old crusty pots with other old crusty pots???
I've said it on here before, you can dismantle a pot and clean the carbon tracks with a pencil eraser without desoldering anything if you are careful and want to maintain the value of vintage gear. I did it to my old HH amplifier and it works perfectly a good year later.
If you see the picture here;
You undo the tags (carefully) that hold the metal back onto the plastic front of the pot.
