Ok well I started browsing online and found a dimmer to make for an led fixture i made. I have not been able to test it i will be testing it tomorrow... I figured i would throw this up since i haven't seen to many write ups and figured people are looking to use some of these.

Parts list
9V ac adapter radioshack didn't carry a 10
10K ohm linear potentiometer 2
dc power connector
2 rubber knobs
small project box
already had the wire and solder

The black wires represent neg (-) wires
One black wire goes to the ground on the dc plug, The other one goes to the neg (-) portion of the driver

The green wire will represent the positive wire coming off your driver

The red of course is the positive from ac plug

I could not find a 10v plug but did find a 9v so settled for that i know rapid led does carry the 10v plugs

I used a small project box from radio shack.
