Why can't I find a desktop-style analog volume knob?

I'd like to have a knob for controlling my computer speakers' volume on my desk. I'm picturing something like the Griffin Powermate
, but because I'm planning to use this at work where I can't install stuff, I need it to be analog rather than USB/software-based. Where can I find one?
I'd think this should be the simplest thing in the world: two 1/8" jacks, with a pot wired between them. (And a big ol' stereo knob, naturally) It could be mounted in a tiny project box. I'd build it myself, but as Mitch Hedberg said, this is a half-assed commitment. So why doesn't this seem to exist?
