Router Speed Controls
Work at the best speed for the router bit and the wood you are using.
Reduces speed without reducing torque! Electronic feedback maintains speed by increasing voltage to motor as load increases.
NEW & IMPROVED! Heavy Duty Speed Control features better circuitry and heavier components! Simply plug in speed control then plug your router into the speed control. Adjust speed from 0 RPM to full speed. The Heavy Duty Speed Control features an aluminum case, and is recommended for industrial and commercial use. The high impact plastic Standard Duty Speed Control has exactly the same features and is suitable for home shops.

How can the speed controller #9400 be mounted on a router table cabinet side? I see no way to mount it solid. All I see is a belt clip and I am certainly not going to clip it onto my belt when I need to be able to move around. I have thought about opening the back and drilling a couple holes for a couple long 4-40 bolts with nuts. I could then put the bolts through the side of my router cabinet. Any comments or better suggestions?

Buy the bigger one!
Have 'em both, but the big one really works like it's supposed to. The router kinda runs funny at low speeds until you put a load on it, then it maintains speed thru the cut. This is one accessory everyone needs if they use a router. It's only ten bucks more, BUY IT!

I bought the #1715 one month ago; the price was good at $25.00 and it is nice to control speeds and helps hard starts, but I feel a lose power when I turn the speed down. But overall I would buy again.

is it true this can be used for 220v ?
MLCS NOTE: This item is not able to be used with 220 V power at this time.

Having been a woodworker/cabinetmaker for over 40 years, I have tried out many innovations. The speed control is a much-used addition to my shop. I purchased the standard model 2 years ago, before buying a variable speed router. After that, I began using it for my scroll saw, band saw and small cut-off tool - talk about versatility! I was so impressed that I also bought the heavy duty model for the higher amperage tools like my planer and band saw. Great items for the older model "hard start" motors. Thanks again MLCS.
