Thanks for the recommendation!
The Gesswein pedals are Foredom brand. The CFL-15 is the carbon
pile type and the least durable. Once broken it really is not
even worth repairing - Foredom wont do it, and recommend you
simply buy a new CFL-15.
Take a look at page 250 of our catalog #45 (don’t have a
catalog? Why not - it’s free!! Email me here with your snail
mail address and I’ll send you one.)
The FCT pedal is popular because of its low price. It’s plastic
but it’s solid state and it’s more durable than the CFL-15.
The SCH is a good heavy duty metal housing so it doesn’t slide
around on you under the bench. It’s also solid state and its
slow speed is pretty good. If you step on it lightly then ease
your foot off slightly you can get a consistant really slow speed
that’s great for your setting jobs etc.
The WF-7 is cast iron housing, really rugged. Solid state also
and good on the slow speeds too. Will last you ages and ages!
And of course there’s a manual control, the EM series, if you
use one speed a lot or if you have limited use of your legs or
If you have any questions on these foot pedals or any of the
equipment we sell, please give me or anyone in our Technical
Services Dept. a call. That’s what we’re here for and we’d love
to hear from you.
