Product information "Atari 5k pot (potentiometer) with slip clutch NOS"

These are actual NOS Atari 5k pots TYPE EJ with the special slip-clutch feature. These were used by all Atari games which used 5k pots.

  • Star Wars
  • Pole Position
  • Return of the Jedi

The slip-clutch was very important and innovative in that it prolonged the life of the pot by preventing damage from over torquing.

Do these pots have stop points?

Do these pots have stop points?  I thought there is a "slip clutch" feature?

That's how they're designed. I had an upright warlords with factory pots, and they have a stopping point, but the slip clutch allows you to keep on turning it past the stop point without damaging the pot if you force it to turn.

But ? "The one I just bought from HSS has HARD stopping points and as I mentioned, it cannot be turned the full 360 degrees."

Yep, that is correct - They're pots, not tempest spinners. If you wrench on it enough, it *will* turn, but won't break internally like a normal pot would. So, consider it a feature that keeps them from breaking when abused.

... they work great and like described, they stop but if you really get on them like a drunk they slip on purpose. ;)
