I would like to know what power the potentiometer must handling .
Sadly I don't know either, if anyone out there can help it will be gladly appreciated.
What power is the motor? Watts divided by local voltage should give you current and [current x current x 10k] will give a guide to power (buy something bigger than that number) It looks to be way over 10 watts to me. Makes it hard to buy one. I'll bet whatever you buy won't fit in the little cage, so you'd have to design a new one. Don't enclose it in anything that blocks airflow as it needs good flow to dissipate the heat.
