Where to solder ground for pots w/o metal cases

    Hello -

    I have a blend and a stacked pot that do not have full metal cases. My question is how do you handle soldering the various ground wires? With a metal backed pot, the ground wire (e.g. from a pickup) can be soldered to the back of the pot. Where do you solder this ground wire if none of the pots have metal backs?

    How about proper shileding and bussing all the ground lugs to a ring terminal screwed into the cavity wall?
