    Hi,
    I got this schematic from a fellow TB'r, but I forgot whom! I just had a quick question if anybody could help me out. I have a 250k push pull pot. I have everything soldered, except to the push pull part. My question is this based off of this schematic: Is this wiring for the push/pull from the top view or the bottom view? All of the pots in the picture are bottom up (hope that makes sense), so I didn't know if that meant that the push/pull was to be wired in this fashion. I don't know if I should have it wired upside down or rightside up. Help!?

    from the top view. So, the actual potentiometer would be on top of the dpdt shown in the diagram

    Thanks. I thought that was the way it is, but everything in the rest of the schematic was wired with the pots upside down.

    yeah, good point! I can see how that would be confusing
