What you are doing is over **** for 300 mA, now if you will pulling some real wattage then you would need linear regulation.
just use a 10.00 ac adapter . or a zener diode .
the calculations in real time analysis is complex GE has the formula online . but a spike at 300ma will be assorbed by the transformer easilly. if you are protecting delicate circuit then a fuse will not work quickly enough , fry and blow is all they do.
a crowbar circuit is what most designers use and efficient.
There are plenty of IC regulators on the market that will give these specs but I think your are over thinking your needs unless you have an exact spec for medical research.

! have a 12v linear actuator that is powered by a 12v supply thru a dpdt switch. I want to regulate the speed of the actuator by using a pot, I bought one that was a b10k, 1/2 w that burned right...

A pot to control current is nothing more than a variable resistor. Go on line ,type in voltage /watts and amps and you will get pages of formula that will allow you to calculate the resistor needed for the job. another way is to get an accelerator control for a electric scooter and use that..

Can you please provide me the power adapter specs? I need to buy a new one.

I found This power supply

It is listed as suitable for the Porsch drives, but the model number on your current unit should tell if it's the right one.

At 12V 3A it is rated higher than the common 12V 2A which is a common rating for hard drive power adapters, and also supplies 5V. These may be required for your drive.

The site has other LaCie power adapters if the model number does not match.

7250PE preamp works, power amp both channels out. Could this be a fuse? Thanks, Mike

Could be possible considering the power amp would be running on a higher voltage rail than the preamp. It really depends on how the manufacturer designed the power supply. If they just have a step down transformer driving a bridge rectifier and then derive the voltage for the preamp by regulating with some for of linear regulator than the fuse theory is not correct. Best bet would be to pop it open and examine what comes after the transformers secondary. Depending on the power this amp is capable of the power supply could be a switch mode instead of linear. You can tell by the weight of the amp, heavy = linear light = switch mode.

I plugged my korg 61 keys workstation directly on 220v instead of 110v, of course it is no longer working. what do I do?

Since your synthesizer uses an external 12v power supply your system should be OK, Replace the power supply with one rated at the following specs.
Power Supply: DC12V, 700mA (AC adapter)

I hope this helps.
