    I just broke off the pot on an Easydriver v 4.3 from sparkfun and was wondering the best way to replace or reinsert it would be. I was able to solder 3 leads off the pot and could only get one of those back onto the board because it was the only one with metal left on the board. The other alternative would be too just bypass the pot because it is current limiting, and I need the most amount of current with it anyways. Would love to hear another opinion on this. Here is the schematic (pdf)

    For max current, tie TP1 to Vcc and you should be good to go.
