The 10k potentiometer I have couldn't be used because the pins were to big to be inserted into the breadboard. I had a small 10k trimmer that is breadboard friendly and used it instead. It worked fine.
Servo Motor: Hitec HS-311
The servo motor didn't come with the three pins at the end of the cable (the ones that go into the breadboard). I used three jumper cables to correct the issue. It worked perfectly.
