  1. I know this was discussed in a @mapleglo thread when she was looking to hide controls, I searched and can't find it. I'm in the same position with the bass I'm working on now - does anyone have a source for pots that pop up when pushed? I searched at Mouser, but didn't find anything.

    Thanks

  4. Push/push pots are typically junk! Why not stick with the usual push/pull style, which is more robust, and very easy to source?

  5. Because they won't work as the OP intends. He wants them to hide flush when not in use.

    FWIW I've yet to see a push-push pot in a catalog that didn't stick up a little above the surface (about 1/8") even when locked in the down position. They don't really sit completely flush.
