Default Will a speed control work

Hi everyone. A friend has given me an inexpensive grinder motor and wheels, that he was planning on using as a boat anchor. I have several sanding mops that I use mostly for scroll saw work and to do this, I have to change them out on my drill press. The grinder motor spins way to fast to use for some of the delicate parts that come off a scroll saw, so I was thinking about buying one of the speed controllers for a router that are available. Finally, the you think it would be safe to run the grinder with this speed controller, or would it burn out the motor windings?

As always, THANKS for the help. I wish everyone a good day.
