How to save broken Hamer Split Shaft Pots

Recommended Posts

I just got a guitar in with broken split shaft pots. Super hard to find Hamer Taper pots. I suggested changing them out but the owner wanted to keep the Hamer pots. He was changing knobs anyway so I did this:  removed the pot, got a solid pot adapter, put the broken part in the adapter on the pot and flowed a little solder in to make it all stuck together. Reinstalled and it worked perfectly with the screw on knobs he was trying to install. Just thought I’d share with you all!!

Great idea! My question is, how the ***k does that get broken in the first place LOL! I've never seen one broken like that.

I think he was trying to spread the split shaft apart to widen it to fit his new knobs. That’s what they make the adapter for!! His comment was “I should of brought it to you in the 1st place”

Yup, I've done it myself... or over tighten the set screw... they're pretty brittle you know 😉... I totally blame Eddie Van Halen for giving me the courage to work on my own guitars 😆
