Not sure which dimmer switch you are using but you can't just cut down the voltage on an AC motor like you can with a DC and expect to get any service out of it. They will heat up for other reasons than just the fan running slow and if yours are doing ok then you probably are not using the rheostat type dimmer or you you are not using them very hard. The question here was "how can I slow down my electric grinders" and simply cutting down the voltage is a darn good way-- to burn out the motors that is!
