Wrong Pots????

Has anyone recently recieved 250K potentiometers that were actually 500K? I checked the values using a very good meter and some are 500 and some 250 even though the cat numbers on the back are the same. The cat # in question is "450S1430 0714". I did a search and cannot find this number online, or at least what the value should be.

I know it's not Warmoths mistake, how could they know that the values were different.

Tolerances are pretty bad on most pots.  I usually soak weak pots in rubbing alcohol.  If you clean them their values will often increase.

I know tolerences can be off by as much as + 20% , but these are definatley 500k in 250k clothing. It would have to be a lot of alcohol to make me see them differently.  :tard: :laughing7:
