So,

we now have the variable output from the Pot.

the variable wiper output goes into the Base of a TIP3055 Transistor you can see it just below the rectifer on the aluminum plate.. both the rectifer and the tip3055 have heatsink grease on the back so it will dissapate any heat better.

Here is a pic of a TIP3055 there are only a couple bucks at an electronics store
