OK, who tries to sleep 1/2 a metre from a Boeing 747-400 reving for takeoff? Well, me for one, well, not quite, but my PC sure sound like one... soooooo, anyway, who has biuilt a Rheobus...? Anyone, Ok, who the hell knows what kind of Pointometer I should use to slow a couple of 80 mm fans...? Any help is greatly appreciated...:thumb:

They used a 20K potentiometer on the one at the bottom.
That sounds like the place to start.:?:

Thanks, I found a 100K Ohm one laying around, but that has way to much resistance. Turn it 1/5 of the way around and it turns off!:hmph:
