If its possible to adjust the speed of the drill and lock it in place why do you need a speed controller? Just wondering how useful it would be.

It does look like a nice setup though. I want to put a motor or a drill on my barley crusher, I am still conflicted on which one to go with.

Some patience and a zip tie might work.

I thought of the zip tie on the trigger but the trigger is angled and I was worried about the zip tie slipping off over time. I also got the controller for xmas so it was no cost to me.

If you want to use a zip tie you could file/cut a notch in the trigger to keep the zip tie in place.

How do you know the speed to set the speed control?

Very nice setup. I have a more or less permanent milling station but as of late I've been showing a lot of friends how easy it is to go all grain. Having such a nice portable station would be cool. I think I'll put together a copy of your idea next week. Good job...
