Yep, here's a couple. Or just Google, "router speed control" and find many more!

G3555 Router Speed Control - 20 Amp

Router Speed Control - Rockler Woodworking Tools

Will those devices work in Oz? Only asking because Oz is on 230/240volt and not 120 volt like the USA

Regards

Hi Ross

You are out of luck on that one,you will need to BUY a Makita router with the speed control built in....no one makes a ext.speed control box for the 220 volt wiring that you have in AU.

Hi Ross,

try Jaycar

240V 10A Deluxe Motor Speed Controller Kit - Jaycar Electronics

Wouldn't hurt to give them a call
