Hi,

I am buying most of my components on aliexpress.com

I am searching for sockets, if they exists, for:

- Trimpots like these and similar trimpots
- Female JR connectors for servo motor. (male connector on the pcb that is not pin headers) I need the type that you cannot plug in the female connector incorrectly.

Both for PCB mounting.

Does that exist?

Start buying your parts from one of the major suppliers like DigiKey or Mouser,
they will have stuff that You never imagined.
In fact they have so many choices that it's sometimes a pain in the butt to
have to sort though thousands of part numbers,
but You can filter your parts searches on any one of the major suppliers sites.

That's probably not a good idea. AE is infamous for low quality knockoffs and sellers who have no idea what they're selling.

I've gotten ESD sensitive parts packed in plastic zip lock bags, alligator clips that were rusted, pad per hole perf board with shorted pads, ...

Unless you're a glutton for punishment, buy from reputable suppliers even if it costs more. Use AE where the benefit outweighs the risk (e.g. SMT P MOSFETs for a couple cents each).

You didn't post any pictures. Some trimmers can use machined pin sockets and others can't.

This came up when I googled JR connectors:

They look to me to be what sellers on AE call Dupont connectors. It sounds like you want a shrouded keyed connector. From Jameco:
