    Would I be correct in assuming the mid-point setting (0-10 scale) of a 15A router speed control would result in approximately half of the full speed of the router? I'm trying to limit rpms to around 10K while running a raised panel bit. First time making doors and am a bit intimidated by the...

    Hi Folks! I want to find a single speed router that has brushes rather than being a induction motor. I am shopping on ebay for used since I want to use it to make a Bowling ball spinner. I will plug it in through a Router Speed Control and they require a motor with brushes and not a variable...

    I didn't know my PC 5182 was so obsolete. Guess I'm showing my age (60). The last time I had it in for service in the 1980s, the variable speed control, for lack of a proper term, was burned out. The guy at the service center said it was ridiculous for PC to have put the electronic speed...
