wood stove blower motor question?
I bought a yard sale special wood stove with a blower and the rheostat that controls it. The motors (2 very small ones) are shot.
I recently yard saled a Dayton #2c069B Shaded Pole Motor that I've been able to adapt mechanically to the wood stove. The controller from the old setup seems to work just fine but is the rheostat okay to use with a shaded pole motor or will running it on low speed cause it to burnup? As it is, it's one honking blower and needs to be slowed down or I'll have a meltdown in the shop! Thanks for any help.
I paid $5.00 for this motor in like new condition.

Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.
It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.
