new foot pedal help please

Well my foot pedal for the G2 power wrapper has finally decided to stop working properly for me. Although I am having it replaced under warranty, it might take a while and I need to get back to working ASAP.

Are there any foot pedals that are readily available on places like Amazon that are worth getting?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Tomos,
For an ac motor driven power wrapper, a very good long lived foot pedal is the Foredom foot pedal.
This pedal is used every day by wood carvers every day as well as for many power wrappers.

[www.amazon.com]

I do not know the connector setup on your wrapper, but in the case of the foredodm pedal there is a male plug that plugs into the wall. There is a female plug that the ac cord from the motor plugs into.

You may need to put an adapter on your wrapper motor setup to match the simple straight forward AC plug on the pedal.

Best wishes.

Thanks Roger,

I ended up getting a foredom as recommended but im having some major issues. ( probably me being stupid)

Ive cut off the old pedal and added a new kettle lead connection to fit the corresponding fitting on the foot pedal. However as soon as I switch the power wrapper on it causes the motor to turn un controllably fast. To the point it was scary.

Is there something I may have missed?

Thanks,

Tom
