All the bench grinders I have seen are induction motors, which like Chuck said do not work with speed controllers.
The only way you might use it is to use step pulleys and a belt and a separate grinder stand, which is a lot of fussing around. Another idea is to get an old drill motor and build a stand to hold it. Then use the speed controller and chuck up the sanding attachments.
