Help needed,
On my workbench are two of my Farish controllers, both have iffy plug connections. I'm partway thro having to build my home layout so i'm quite happy to hardwire these as the internal sockets have failed.
Ive taken the back off and can see screws holding the upper grey case to the PCB, what I cannot spot is how the big speed knob comes off.
Does anybody know?
Theres nothing wrong with either controller function, plus my layout will need at least four in close proximity of each other so I see no reason to replace them with anything else.
Thanks all

You donít need to get the knob off. Once the back is off there are another four screws which allow the inside board to come away from the front. Be careful as there are still wires going to the pot from the main board of course.
