RE: EDP Knob Gone Bad--Where Do I Get it Fixed?
The new pots we use have a longer metal 'collar' which greatly reduces
this from happening. Do you know anyone who's handy with a soldering
iron? Pot replacement is one of the easier repairs on an EDP and I'll
send you a set if you e-mail your address.
You could try Shane, but it'd be quicker and cheaper just to get a mate
to change them for you; unless you live near to Shane.
P.S. it's worth changing all 4 while you're in there.

Talking about pot replacement on the EDP.
if you unscrew the front and take off the knobs (just pushing) you
can feel whether the input knobs axis is a little looser than the
if this is not the case, the problem may not be that it broke, but may
the pot anyway.
Might be interesting to verify with a ohm-meter: measure the total
resistance of it, while moving it...
if you are not familiar with a soldering iron and multilayer PCB, and
willing to do the fix yourself, we better stop this discussion, because
rep knows what I am saying here...
