Re: Type 1A4 dissassembly

No worries, thanks!

I'll have to get it on the bench again, but I have a question. When you say "pot's own setscrew" is this the one that is in the broken plastic bit or is there another one I'm missing?

?Sorry, just a guess.

The 1A4's VAR pot is special, with (a) a rear hole for the shaft to continue
to the slide switch, and (b) a push-pull detent. I think the latter is molded
contiguous with the setscrew cross.

If this is the case, then I think to remove the shaft, you

1- Loosen the forward screw in the slide switch coupler

2- Loosen the pot's own setscrew.

At that point I think you can pull the knob and slide the rod out of the
coupler then out of the pot.
