I think I read somewhere that you can take one without a variable control and wire it through a light dimmer to make it a variable. True ?

Thank you all you guys there is some great info here. Where can I find one of those foot controls?


Shouldn't be too hard to find. It popped right up with a search on Amazon. Bound to be lots of other places too.

Yes Cobraman, you can use a Dimmer Switch to get your Dremel to rotate at speeds below it's lowest setting.
