    Can someone have a look at the attached image and tell me what kind of pins these are and what component do I need to attach it to my breadboard?

    *solder lugs* just solder some wires on and you are good to go.

    The round holes are made to accept stranded hook up wire but you can use solid 22 AWG wire like you use for breadboard jumpers. The spacing of the solder lugs is not correct for your board so solid pins would not work well without bending the lugs into position.

    Many of us use top adjusting multiturn trim pots on breadboards since they take up less space and fit without adaptation but they're more difficult to adjust.
