I tried several ready made PWM speed control circuits. Of the few I tried, there were problems that I did not like.

Here is the schematic.

Schematic DC motor speed control

1) Lots of components.

2) PWM running as a low frequency which became audible as a loud buzzing sound from the motor.

3) I needed to build it now, and did not have all the components.

My solution, although it’s much like cracking nuts with a sledge hammer, solved these problems.
