Electric motor 101. Split phase 120 volt motors are "induction" type motors with the speed controlled only by the frequency of the current. If it has brush type motor, you should be able to vary the speed. I know years ago, they use to sell speed controllers for drills, we had a couple in the shop and worked well. Most hand tool motors with brushes will work on DC also!
