Default Rotary Led dimmer

Do they exist because I cannot find them anywhere. Have a client who is a bit old fashioned and wants this type.

You'll find them in fan controls. Incandescent only.

Thanks. Damn this sucks. I just changed a bunch of incandecent candelabra bulbs for a chandelier to led. I charged them for a new dimmer but told them I could get a rotary type.
Live and learn I guess!

Strong preference towards using materials approved for the application. Even
so, I'd install a rotary type and see what happens. Probably work fine. I haven't
heard of a rash of home fires occurring when HO's change their lamps to LED
without also changing the switch/dimmer.

Yah reason I got called in the first place was because hubby changed the bulbs to led and they would flicker when dimmed. I saved them some money supplying them bulbs I stock instead.
