Of the few I've used, it seemed they all ran at a pretty good clip. Like shapers, I was just getting into the trade as they were on their way out.

There are ways to slow it down. I've been watching for one I can afford near me there great for hand fitting parts. Depending on the motor a simple reostat May work. The router speed reducers at HF sometimes work fine . The motor looks small enough it may work. What speed is the motor if it's 3600 rpm get a slower one or variable speed one.
