Introduction: PWM Dimmer Using NE555 and MOSFET With DIY Aluminium Case.

 a low cost PWM dimmer  using  NE555 and MOSFET  with DIY aluminium case.

Step 1: Aluminum Case From Aluminum Square Tube.

aluminum case  has dual role.

first one is            protection cover.
and second is    heat sink forMOSFET.

Step 2: Drilling Holes
