  • Sale
  • Regular price £54.99


Fantastically versatile metal pedal foot switch, suitable for controlling a wide range of tools including scroll saws, table routers, grinders, drill presses, log splitters and lathes. Simply plug the unit in between the tool and the power supply.

In response to customer feedback the pedal is fitted with a switch within the socket unit, which changes between the following methods of operation:

  • Normally open (NO) - The power is turned on when the pedal is depressed, and turns off as soon as it's released.
  • Normally closed (NC) - The power is turned off when the pedal is depressed and turns on as soon as it's released. Ideal as an emergency stop if used with a tool with an NVR (start/stop switch).

Please note that the switch does not latch on. If you need a latching version, please click here.

Where fitted, an NVR (start/stop switch) would need to be bypassed for the pedal to control the tool. Otherwise, each time the pedal turns on the supply, the start button on the tool would have to be pressed. Further guidance can be found here.
