Thanks, CD!

1) The resistors do not get warm....


...I just got up and checked.

2) The control leaves something to be desired. What I really needed was a way to shut the fan off, this accomplishes that desire. The fans will stall half way through the full range of rotation.

3) The fans will "tick" (armature ?) at the stall threshold, then stall if the controller is turned down any more.

Note: I would guestimate that I get approx 30% of the full spectrum of control. On a closed case this would be an issue, on this open-air bench the issue is essentially moot....

...in fact I really do not need fans at all on this bench .... I felt like tinkering and this is what happened when I scratched that itch...
