    Quantity:
    The 'Naked Bell Assembly' is a finger-tip throttle assembly (speed control mechanism) using the 50 degree pot. It has a spring return to zero and is supplied with a mounting bracket and a vinyl-capped lever. The spring is light operation to minimize finger strain from continuous pressure on an over-strength spring, yet is still strong enough to ensure reliable operation. The lever can safely be bent if a different shape is needed. This feature means that if the lever gets accidentally bent, it can be easily re-shaped!

    The mechanism is also quite suitable for use as a position sensor, for instance in a foot operated pedal, where the lever can be operated by an extension of the foot pedal.

    It should also be possible to use this mechanism on a Bowden cable for remote operation.

    Cons:
    This would be 4 or 5 stars, except for the one reason I bought it- a spring return that can center to a point in the middle. The device does not do that- it only springs back one way.

    For a robot, or anything that has a reverse on it, it should stop the device if you let go the lever from either direction by springing back to the middle and stopping- like it is on a joystick on a transmitter.

    They should should be clear in the catalog that it is one way.
