The plastic cover fell off the dial of my microforce zoom controller. Preston no longer make this item. Any idea where I can get a new one from?

Bourns doesn't manufacture this 3600 series potentiometer anymore but you can get one of these refurbished ones:

For what it's worth, I recently had Preston replace my old pot with the new one and I'm glad I did. It's  a simple single turn knob, similar to the Panavision zoom stick, much faster to set than the multi-rotation original item.

Did it have a dial Charles? I was looking at the digital microforce and the knob on the bottom was a solid black with no dial.

Yes, that is the current model. However they replace the analog-type pots with a different kind of pot. I can try to post a picture on Monday when I'm back at work, but basically imagine a dial that goes from 1 to 10.
