    Default Light dimmer for angle grinder speed control

    Hei Guys,
    Is it possible to use a light dimmer as a speed controller for an angle grinder or doesn't it work that way.
    I want to slow down my 4inch angle grinder so I can use it with a buffer pad to polich the alloy wheels on my car.
    Cheers
    Paul

    Light dimmer cannot handle the power of a 4" angle grinder.
