Does anyone know where I can buy those old school type small potentiomenter with switch you know the ones like they had on the first hand held radios in the 60s-70s and on walkmans and stuff just a little wheel and the click for volume control. And cheap of course

I know I could by the standard rather large pots with DSPT but I want to put
this thing inside a mouse (computer mouse that is) .


Here are some thumbwheel pots without switches from DigiKey (starting
from 1.09). Perhaps you can activate an electronic switch when the
resistance is near zero.
