The one at the bottom of this page should be okay http://www.greenweld.co.uk/acatalog/Shop_Potentiometers_254.html

Wire the left contact to the +ve feed of the bulb (from whatever controls it). Wire the middle to the bulb (to where you removed the wire to do the first connection). Wire the remaining terminal to the wire going to the bulb -ve (keeping the wire from whatever controls it still connected).

Not sure that makes much sense.

Okay, call the outputs of the controller A and B.
Call the bulb terminals C and D.
Call the pot terminals E, F (the middle one) and G.

As it is now A goes to C, and B goes to D.

What you want instead is:

A wired to E
F wired to C
B wired to D and to G.

If it works 'backwards' (i.e. when you turn it clockwise the bulb dims) then just swap the wires over on E and G.

Think that's right, maybe someone else will come along and confirm (or point out any mistakes, lol).
