Why do you need speed control it your drill is variable speed?  I couldn't see and adjustment knob on the trigger.  If not I guess it could be locked on high and use the speed control from there.

the spped control on the trigger is iffy at best.  I would rather open it up and control it with the other controller.  But It has been working as is for the past year, just takes some adjusting during the milling process.

I just run the drill as fast as it will go.  It increases the shear angle and gives me a finer crush.

I am scared this will not work out well for me.
I just got my mill back from the folks at BC, so starting over with the settings and way forward.
