    Hi Brad,

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

    If for some reason that doesn't do it for ya, in a pinch Dremel tool speed controls will work. Just gotta change the motor to a plug end. "If all else fails cheat!"
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!
