Many years (at least 15-20) ago my dad made a 240V touch light dimmer from a
kit. Quick touch on-off. Fingers on dim-up/dim-down. The finished product
consisted of a brushed aluminium plate in a blank HPM mount. They have
since moved out of home and the switches are still in the wall there. I
know there was a later kit which featured infra-red and multi output, but I
liked the original, simpler and cheaper. I'm sure it would have been in EA
or ETI, silicon chip weren't around at that stage, but I haven't had much
luck in finding it, even with google. Is there anyone out there who may
have a copy of the article, still have one of the switched, or a schematic
or PCB lay-out, that would be fantastic.
Many thanks in advance

** Very likely the "Touch Light Dimmer " published in EA magazine in April
The same article included a remote control option.
