Does anyone have a stash of these or know where I can get them?

I can get plenty of metal bushed pots but these are for TVs where there can be (is in this case) 500 volts on the element and slider. The existing pot is breaking down to ground.

I was thinking of ordering some from Alpha in Taiwan. Their Type 8 pot comes close in that it's a 24mm plastic bush and shaft type with useful-looking insulation....

Anyone know about anything better?

Thanks JJ I'll check and email you.
My laptop with the TV schematics on it is undergoing a screen replacement at the moment.

Looking for, I think, a 1M linear preset pot for the HMV PN series.

I have found several NOS 1 meg presets. From my vast stock, hoarded over many years.
Email me your address and how many you need.
JJ
