Okay, if you used a standard "audio taper" 3K pot, you would get:
Full left 0
This looks like a slightly different taper, but probably close enough
that you could get away with it by slightly altering the markings.
Thanks for the suggestion to use a standard potentiometer that =

compensate for the difference. However, I will have to verify two =

You can get audio taper pots easily, which have a standard log scale.
Getting antilog pots is harder.
- how much power the original potentiometer was supposed to dissipate. =
It may not be easier at all to find high-power carbon potentiometers=20
Now THAT may be the rub. BUT you can still get audio-taper wirewound
pots for speaker level applications. They're getting harder and harder
to find, though.
