Braids coarse tune notch

Hi all, I’ve noticed that the notch on my coarse tune pot settles on a different frequency depending on whether I approach the notch from a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction. Is it a dodgy pot or is that just the way it goes with notches on coarse controls?

That’s just how notches work on pots. There is some mechanical backlash that causes the locking position to differ by a few tenth of a degree each time.

Okay thanks I thought so, it’s not really much of a problem
