Default Plan "B" for repairs to Trend T3 router

If the attempted speed controller repair goes wrong this is plan B. A triac based unit that is fitted in an enclosure and located in series with the power cord. It will be free of vibration and should do job. A bypass switch may also be included to ensure maximum speed can be obtained.

direct wire the motor to make it a single speed and use an external speed controller...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Forget the primal scream, just ROAR!!!
