I'll accept that. I have had 1 TIC ring up for 20 years, and the other
for 10 years. Never had an issue with moisture in the pots. OTOH,
lightning is what fries my pots. I found a few Bourne 500 ohm pots at a
hamfest a few years ago. Bought them all. Good insurance. No lightning
issues since then.
This has been a very interesting and informative set of threads. I can
also say I have had no issues with slippage in a very long time, either.
However, the 20 year old ring is showing rust on the spring and rollers.
Only a matter of time...
