Re: Source for 16mm audio taper pots...
You can get the mini pots in 500KA and 250KA from Allparts. They're not $1 each, though.  
 
Some pots with discrete position detents accomplish this feature with an external mechanism. Sometimes you can modify (lighten the spring tension) or remove the mechanism completely, and get the pot to track smoothly. The resistance element is continuous; the detents are connected to the shaft of the rotor/ wiper.
