Speed controllers only work on universal type motors. I believe that if the motor has a starting circuit that kicks out once the motor is up to speed it won't work. It may depend on how old it is so more info and maybe a picture or two might be necessary.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
