Hubby checked the motor again . . . decided it couldn't be more than 1/3 HP . . . It's not labeled.

Hi all,

I'm a newbie here! . . .

I'm getting back to pottery after a long break . . . I have an old Craftool Pottery wheel that would work great, if it wasn't for a broken foot pedal. The broken part was very fragile and cannot be repaired.

It's possible that a foot pedal from another wheel would work . . . hubby is an electrical engineer who can fix most things.

What he tells me is that I need a DC electronic speed control that works with a 10 amp load. Motor is 3/4 HP. There are three wires coming from the pedal - one to the switch/fuse (black).

If anyone has a foot pedal that may work, please let me know.
