Do any of you know if you could control the speed of an abrasive chop saw to bring it down into the range of a dry saw (1000 to 1300 rpm) with something like what you use to control a variable speed drill? The HF chop saw I've got has a motor with brushes, and from what I understand, that would be one prerequisite to cheaply control the speed. I'd love to be able to use the carbide metal cutting blades in it, and even tried the Bullet blade with no luck. It seems that if I could slow it down, maybe the blades would work in it. Maybe a switch like I have on my portable band saw where you can limit the travel with a threaded adjuster? Has anybody tried this?
