Fan Speed Control

Hooked up speed control switch to ac motor to run my manual #32 meat grinder but when I try to adjust the speed on the switch it does not change the speed. Am I missing something simple?

Welcome to the forums.

A fan control of that type is only effective on small shaded poles motors like in fans.
You'd need a VFD (variable frequency drive) controller. Could be in the $100 range.
The size required is based on the motor amperage.
