AC is EZ. Just a three prong cord and a switch will do it. I have a small AC solid state 'dimmer'. It's made for fan motor speed control. The motor on the lower left has a rheostat wired in for speed control. I'll test it to be sure it's ok. It might be a better choice weight wise as well.
Where are you located? I'm about 45 minutes west of Portland.
Yeah, that dial did catch my eye...
I figure that lightswitch dimmer I have laying around wouldn't do the trick since I'm sure the motor would draw more amps that it could handle.
I'm about 40 miles north of San Francisco. (Petaluma)
So should I plan a roadtrip?
