    At last I've found a cheap way of increasing servo throw. Bridge the terminals of the position detector pot with 2.2k resistors. This increases the throw from 90° to 120°. It works with standard and mini servos. The resistor value seems to depend on the value of the position pot, but I've yet to work it out. WATCH THIS SPACE ! 20190512_171332.jpg

    I found out the idea by accident. I often use a remote position pot, and one time I'd forgotten to disconnect the internal pot in the servo, and the servo throw suddenly increased by about 25%, so I INVESTIGATED !!
