Speed can be adjusted (with speed controller accessory) for this one with the speed controller add-on, but don't let it get too hot. Because of the summer heat, it is recommended to put this in a well ventilated place, ideally with a fan pointed at it as well.

Off center mode – applies more force to the side of the switch by pressing on the side of the keycap (one side at a time, the user rotates the switch plate to break in the other sides).
- The machine is quite loud, you’d definitely want to place it in another room when running it. I suggest placing a cardboard box over it to slightly block out the sound. Unfortunately I do not have any ways to demonstrate the noise level.
Carbon brush motor – more durable than copper.
Injection molded gear box w/ nylon gears (not made by me obviously).
