It adjusts voltage but there is absolutely no measureable current.
I should have avoided details about the motor because they digress from the immediate problem: Why is the circuit regulating voltage but killing the current? I'm using a 240 ohm resistor and 5k pot.
I set the multimeter to measure the resistance (through the multimeter) while under load. In any case, my circuit is adjusting voltage, but killing current. After reviewing the tutorials, there seems to be no mention of how to fix the current while regulating the voltage.
