Answer: 
a good variable frequency drive would do the job but they are quite expensive. a standard rheostat would work, but even a 2 hp router would probably burn out because of the low voltage applied. the best solution is to buy a router with speed control already. that would be the least expensive in the long run

Customer Reviews

2 HP 1/2 in. Corded Fixed Base Router is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Correcting incorrect reviews. OK, every one has their own opinion, But, one reviewer states that changing bits while in the base is impossible. Really ? I have no problem at all. Actually easier than the Porter Cable I had before. Did he read the instructions? And the hight adjustment, again, way better than P.C. Another review stated spare parts (collets) can't be found. So just for the heck of it I looked for 1/4 adapter collets, and had two ordered in ten minutes, to be shipped in two days. Just saying. I have no affiliation with Ridgid, but this is a great router, and I wish I hadn't wasted my money and time on the Porter Cable which turned out to be an over rated piece of trash.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't believe they discontinued the plunge router attachment! This would be an excellent option if you intend to only use it under a router table or any application that does not require or which is made more efficient with a plunge router.
Date published: 2016-07-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from like the router easy to set up and use, like the compact power it produces
Date published: 2016-08-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power to spare and easy to adjust I bought this to replace an older Rockwell router. I love the easy adjustment and quick detachable base. It's very easy to attach to a router table. I wish it came with 2 bases as I would leave one permanently fixed to the router table.
Date published: 2016-07-12
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't use template guide bushings This router doesn't accept standard template guide bushings. Looked for the Ridgid version online and they are nowhere to be found. No adapter available either. No go for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good hard working router Easy to set up, is doing what I need it to do. Not as powerful as I could use, but good price for the product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bit falls out No matter how tight i get the chuck the but will fall out
Date published: 2016-12-06
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality product with two design flaws Really like the overall performance of this router but two things about the design need improvement: 1. the on/off switch, located on the top front, is quite inconvenient in case of the need of a quick shutoff-you have to take your hand off the grip and reach up and around to flip the switch. Would be much safer to locate it near a thumb to maintain a two handed grip on the running tool and 2. changing bits is cumbersome, hardly enough room in the small opening for your finger to depress the locking switch and wrench.
