I thought you had this all sorted?
It's a very basic circuit based on a 555 timer. Nothing wrong with that apart from the price (compared to the ebay unit). You would need to replace the trimpot with a similar value of potentiometer you can stick a knob onto, and of course add a reversing switch and a box.
I can't read any of the user manuals (I assume your French is better than mine) but I think the pot is a 10K linear type.
Regards
Rob

That doesn't seem to be the same product you linked to first. I was looking at this manual: https://produktinfo.conrad.com/datenbla ... lateur.pdf

Oops ! You're right. This electronic diagram must be better:
