Hi all,
I was just wondering if I can connect my Craftsman bench grinder through my router speed control, so I can slow down the grinder??
Thanks in advance.

Ralph

NO!

Router speed controls only work on motors with brushes, AKA series wound or universal wound motors.

Bench grinders have induction motors.
