Working on a Dig Dug for a guy yesterday and brought it back from the
dead.

One prob, though, the volume pot is rusted in place...and the volume
isn't very high. Can't move it.

Bob Roberts doesn't carry this part. Anyone know a source for the
metal volume pots that go on an Atari game near the test switch?

I should have these NOS. I just need a part # so I can check my stock.

Unless you really want the same looking pot, I've used Radio Shack
audio-taper pots for the volume.

Did you actually ask Bob or just look on his Web site. I bought one
from him about 1.5 months ago (was used).

Good luck.
