    I know nothing about electronics. Since you have internet, though, have you tried to purchase the required component on-line?

    I cant buy it over internet cause our MF commie president in venezuela has got the country under a trade Control!!......to buy stuff over the internet you got to do a super long Burocratic process that will take me several months.......

    i have that schematic but miss the component.......and over the internet i cant find an Automatic light Dimmer....that varies the light intensity inversly proportional to the ambient light.....does anyone has an schematic that could pass me please!!.....thanks a lot!!....
