Now, does a rheostat lower voltage output at a constant rate, like let's say it alays lowers your voltage by 5 volts or something, or does it always bring it down to the same level. Will always bring your voltage down to 5 volts whether you're putting in 10 or 15? Or does it work in a completely different way and my lack of knowlege in electronics is preventing me from grasping this whole thing?

In other news, after seeing your footage, I ordered one of Daniel's vibrating holders, It should come in a couple days. In the meantime I'll be doing tests with some different light shaping screens.

A rheostat is like a fan speed. You turn it up or you turn it down, but instead of speed, it's volts. I need to take the 1.5v from the AAA battery and bring it down to .08v or 1.2v. To slow the speed on the motor. Daniel was saying if it's too much it can break the leaf springs. So, over the weekend I'll be getting a rheostat. Hopefully.
