As long as it's a universal (ac/dc brush type) ,motor, you can get what you need with a cheapie Harbor Freight variable speed control. I have a couple that I caught on sale for about $10. Running a universal motor on lower voltage will only do damage if you run it at high loads, which I doubt will be your case. An example of a universal motor running at low voltage would be variable speed drills, sewing machines, etc. A pulse width control would be better, but in my opinion, not necesary for low torque loads.
