Control Knob for LED/CCL
« on: September 22, 2003, 07:18:36 PM »

Has anyone found a knob, that you can turn to dim LED's or CCL's?  I know that there are some control's premade by antec etc..., but I want to place the knobs in other locations.

Yea, I have not yet been over there to check things out.  I know that there is a wealth of information found on the net, like those LED's that were so cheap.

I hope to create something similar to the ANTEC Nexus but in a dif location.

A potentiometer will control the brightness of an LED.

I have seen lots of switches/toggles/knobs around here.  Anyone have a preference to which ones look the coolest?
