I'm looking through "An Analog Synthesizer for the 21st Century" and there's an item I can't understand. I asked a friend who is an engineering prof and he didn't know either. I googled and didn't see anything like it. Why is there a slashed out circle in this image? What does it mean versus a regular pot?



Thanks, in advance, for your response(s) if any.

this is a multiturn pot, to be set with a small screwdriver.

Oh, that makes so much sense NOW that you tell me. I've got them and use them when I'm fiddling around on the protoboard because they don't take up much space, but didn't know what the symbol was. Thanks!

often trimmers are in schematics shown with an flat side instead of the arrow…

Like here in the Symbol in the upper left… no matter if the sign of the variable resistor is that zigzag lines or a rectangle

That's even more helpful. I've seen them, and now I realize I could have guessed since in the bom it did say trimmer. Thanks!
