Hi, I did a Google search for "Router Speed Control" and came up with 10 or more pages of lionks to businesses selling router speed controls.

With so many pages, I gave up after three looking to find a Canadian Company. I am sure that in those three pages I missed a Canadian Company because I am from the US and not familiar which might be Canadian.

Hope this is of some help. Give it a whirl.

All the best

Try the following search "router speed control" Canada ) You must enter your search within quotation marks and Canada after. I found several pages of Canadian sources.

If you will be using your router(s) often buy a variable speed soft start router. Most ,if not all, of the controllers are merely rheostats to control small DC series motors aka universal motors,when the speed goes down so does the torque. Don' confuse these with the AC speed controllers that modulate voltage or frequency and cost many times the price of router controllers.
