    I don't know the correct name or the tec. name but I have 2 lights that are controlled by a switch that allows you to dim or brighten them. Not sure how the 120v to 12v will work. Any good store for electrical stuff should be able to help you. Good luck.

    Look for controls for a 12V variable speed controller. Google it there are quite a few. This one might work for you

    Didn't know you had two threads on the same subject...

    Here's my reply from the other thread:

    Hi Brad,

    What you need is a 12v rheostat that can handle the current of your
    drywasher motor. This should handle the job nicely.

    Just remember to look at what wattage your needing to run this at full bore ! to small of a wattage will burn it up on you! When I looked for a electrical part (like your needing ) I always got more wattage than I needed to keep it from burning up !

    Here ya go.
    This subject came up in Feb. Do a search on this site for the full thread.

    Use a pwm, it's better for the motor than a dimmer switch.

    Just copy and paste this in ebay search
