    Posted: 03 September 2018 at 12:39pm
I have a LS1 that i bought this summer and really like the machine in general. My question in particular is if there is a better "add on" accessory that allows better control of the speed of the machine? I have considered upgrading the motor, but that would only work at my shop in a fixed stand and would have to change when this is "portable" back to the stock motor. Does the upgraded foot speed control allow for better motor and speed control? I'm happy to purchase one, but would like to know what others experience is first.

Thanks in advance.

There is no better foot control for the portable setup. But if you go with that Industrial table stand with the Workhorse Servo motor you will not regret it - and it will spoil you! But as you mentioned you lose portability in this configuration.
