Trimpots are trimmer-style potentiometers. They are designed for tuning a circuit and not meant for a lot of use. However, I like using them for a small version of a potentiometer. No potentiometer has what I would call a long life, but these pots seem to go long beyond their specified number of cycles.

This style is nice for regular potentiometer use in that it has an exposed thumbwheel. What I do is fashion a knob out of Sculpy and press it on while sculpting. Then, bake the knob and when hardened, superglue it into place. Just don’t do what my daughter did once and let the glue run down into the pot. Hold it upside-down when attaching :). When using for a regular potentiometer, just remember that it won’t last forever, although I seem to get a few hundred cycles or so. Not bad for a trimpot.
