A very good tool but needs better speed control

I use this for all sorts, sharpening, grinding and so on. My wife uses it for wet grinding and polishing glass (using all sorts of diamond abrasive accessories from the excellent D K Holdings in Kent). It's powerful and reliable, the only thing is that it's very hard to keep a constant slower speed. I saw mention of a table top controller and that may be the next thing for me. But other than that one quibble, I can't think what else I could buy that would be nearly as good. Dremel, Proxxon and so on all a bit light weight and toy like for what we use it for.

Best power tool

Without doubt the best power tool I bought last year. Excellent for very precise work and easily controlled with the foot switch. This is simply another example of the superb tools Axminster offer. Thank you

Very good but need more accesories

Hi Very good and versatile equipment. Need to get table top speed regulator as pedal is nigh on impossible to control for slower speed work with chisel and hammer pieces.
