sometimes you might want to top out at a speed,, for instance, you
use different speeds to carve wax, wood, white metal, silver with
the same bur,,, can you then adjust the dremel speed to 5 or 4 or 8
and then use the footpedal from 0-4,, or 0-8??,,, that would be a
valuable asset, cause you wouldn't have to pay so much attention
to the foot pressure
Sounds like a good idea, but it is not. The foot speed control
varies the power by chopping up the AC current, not by providing a
reduced voltage. The speed control in the Dremel does the same thing.
The Dremel speed control electronic circuit requires an AC current
and can be damaged or malfunction by being fed chopped up AC current
from the foot speed control. With the Dremel speed control set to
maximum, the Dremel electronics are bypassed and all the power goes
to the motor so the Dremel maximum speed setting is safe tor using a
foot speed control.
