We recently fried one of our foot pedals for a foredom flexshaft. It
is model SCT-1 from Gesswein. The foot pedal no longer acts as a
variable speed control; it now acts as an on/off switch, where you
have nothing or the flexshaft running at full speed. When we opened
the foot pedal up, there is only one plastic encased part inside. I
think it is probably a variable resistor or something of the sort. It
is stamped “Lucerne USA speed control 125V AC 6Amp”. We have searched
extensively on the internet and cannot find this company. Does
anyone know where we might buy this sort of thing? We will not have
problems wiring it in if we could just find the part.
We know we can replace the foot pedal, but we’d like to restore this
one if possible and economical.
