Smile Router Speed Controls

I bought a route speed control. When I use it on slow speeds it has virtually no power. Am I doing something wrong or do I need a different controler??

It would be helpful to know what router you have, and what speed control devise you are using.

Otherwise, without that information, I think you have a 99% definite maybe of a problem (possibly).

Depending on what type of job you are doing. Slow speeds for large bits. Also depends on the type of material you are routing as well.

More info. is neeed to correctly answer your question.

Hi Dan1931

This will be true on all router speed control units...

On a router, speed = HP that's to say a router needs the speed (RPM) to make the HP...think of it as a 2 cly. eng...no bottom end (no power) to speak of...when the rpm's are low...

On older routers that DON't have a VS built in ..

The only thing you can do to over come this type of error is to upgrade your router to one of the newer type...
