Do you think this switch would be safe to use to vary the speed of a 120v, 7.5 amp wood lathe?

Answer: 
Hi, Joe. Thanks for your question. We would not recommend this switch for a 7.5 amp item, as this is only good for items that draw 6 AMPs or less. All of our Variable Speed Control Switches are 6 AMPs or less. So, unfortunately, we will not have a switch that will work for this. But thank you for considering us, and I hope if you are ever interested in Bathroom Exhaust fans or kitchen Range Hoods, you Read More

Answer: 
Hi Joe,
This switch is designed for a bathroom fan and is not heavy duty enough or has the amperage rating for use with a wood lathe.
You will need a speed control switch designed for power tools. Contact Rockler Woodworking and Hardware, or any other power tool dealer for the proper switch.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Variable Speed Control My ratings only apply if this one lasts longer than the last one. Original fan control lasted 18 years. The replacement for that one (identical to this one) only lasted 6 years. If this one does not last longer than 6 years, I would need to reduce my rating. Time will tell. The only problem is that nobody makes an alternative speed control. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Heat Sink is LARGE. Functions well though. Heat sink is large--and is outside the junction box--to accommodate up to 6 amps (see photos). I only tested it briefly and it worked fine with a NuTone exhaust fan. Since the fan I have only pulls 2.4 amps, I went with the 57W (3 amp max) because that unit doesn't have a protruding heat sink.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Switch Easy install. Make sure you read the directions and get the proper outlet box. July 14, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by The speed control is BIG This unit is larger than it appears in the picture. The speed control has a large external heat sink that sticks out from the wall 7/8 inches. The heat sink measures 2 5/8 by 4 1/2 inches. The high capacity of this speed control requries this large heat sink. If you have a single electrical box and plenty of room around it everything will be fine. If you have a ganged box with another switch next to it you are in trouble. I had to order a smaller Broan model 57-W to fit in my available space. October 4, 2008
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 72W Fan Switch I was looking for a paddle fan control switch, and this was listed with the fan controls and accessories. However, this switch is not made for a paddle fan per the manufacturer (Broan), but the H.D. specifications does not tell you that. You should get the 78 Broan fan control for a paddle fan. I have advised one of the engineers at Broan to straighten this situation out with H.D. And H.D. should sell both colors, white or Ivory, not just the white one. December 28, 2007
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what i needed I was getting a downdraft down the chimney because my broan attic fan was too powerful. This was the controller broan recommended and it works great. I have it running at half speed and the downdraft is gone! As previous reviews mentioned it is big but i have it in a closet so its no big deal. Gets warm to the touch. Broan makes quality parts so i don't forsee any issues. August 9, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality product I found this switch to be of VERY high quality, well manufactured, and it works VERY well. October 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works perfect with any PSC motor up to 1/2 hp or so My exhaust hood sucks ash out of my wood stove at full speed so adding this to my range hood was a godsend. Hi quality speed control, no humming of motor at any speed. March 27, 2012
