No problem!  Set my power supply to 12V and hook it up to my car charger. :)  Does anyone else use their power supply for anything like that?

I have one of those rechargeable "wand" massagers that I bought back in the 1980s.  When the nicads finally died,  I rewired the charging plug so it feeds the motor directly,  and run it off a bench supply.  It now works even better,  because I can vary the speed   :)

I don't have an adjustable supply yet. Need workshop first.

I have a degree in chemistry.  I'm never going to be happy unless I have a few instruments that I can use to recreate lab conditions.  A variable power supply is a must! :P  

BTW, the one I got is a "cheap" ~$40 one off ebay.  But it works beautifully and having that for random needs is invaluable.

Hey @Tweedius,

I saw your signature says you are from Madison WI... I attended school there... it's a very nice town.
