Speed Control for Bench Grinder
I don’t know if this is a dumb question or not…but does anyone know if one of those router speed control switches would work for a bench grinder? I realize the rpms are much different, but I would think that it is relative to the tool it is controlling. I recently inherited a forty year old Craftsman Industrial Bench Grinder. Amazingly, it was made in the USA, and it hums like it was brand new. I could get a lot more use out of it if I could slow it down, but I don’t know if a speed control switch would work. Any of you “motorheads” know the answer?
Another cool feature is that he little spark windows are actually steel framed 1/4″ glass.
