Greetings Allan,

Welcome to The Router Forums. Thank you for taking the time to join up and introduce yourself. This is a great place to exchange ideas and information on how to get the most out of your router!

Are you trying to find a replacement part that goes into the router you mentioned or an external controller?

The only speed controller I have ever used is the one Harbor Freight sells.

I have a HF one too and it works fine. I have noticed that it cuts down a little on the torque however I use it on a variable speed router that I burned out the internal control so I'm not sure if that is a factor. It seems to be the same controller that MLCS sells but it is considerably cheaper at HF
