An alternative to stepping down the 6 volt heater motor, and then the fan
runs much slower than original, is to replace the motor with a 12 volt
motor. Most auto parts places or Grainger can get a motor that fits right in
(with the exception of having to shorten the shaft). I dunno why the fan
runs slower when its stepped down, but I hear this is common.
