Been lurking for a while but not enough. Im looking for a better
speed control for my Porter Cable 7519
I did the take apart thing and removed the soft start module
and plugged into this: (the 20A version)
I don't like this thing. The 'variable' speed dial doesn't seem to
change speeds. At full speed its full speed. Switch over to dial
mode 'full' speed and cuts down some. Turning it downward doesn't
make much change and still seems quite high in speed. You see a very slight change in speed as you go down so it seems not much changed.
Second part of this is, it's ugly and you cant integrate it within the table. I opened it but you cant do much with it unless you really
take it apart. So.... I don't get the clip on this. What to wear on your pants? and accidentally turn the dial and mangle your draws?
Is there another way I could put speed control maybe with
digital readout? Would I need a VFD? I got the router for free.
I have no problem with getting a better router w/ better speed control.
There has to be something better for speed control.
What to do?
