Adding variable switch/dial to air hockey table fan.
« on: March 28, 2018, 09:23:25 AM »
I have a couple of 120v AC fans that came from old air hockey tables, they currently have a toggle switch to turn them on and off however I would like to be able to control there speed instead of it just being full on or off as they are quite noisy at max. I have limited knowledge with electronics and I don't typically mess with mains voltage but I was curious if this was possible and if so what type of switch I could use or what would be best. I would prefer a small switch similar to the one it already has but I would also be fine using a bigger one if needed.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
