Flex Shaft foot pedals

john lucas
>Jennifer posted last week or so about having trouble using the foot pedal on the flex shaft machines. I played with both of mine this week and I find that if I turn them sideways they are much easier to control. In other works I don't use them the way the look like you should use them with the narrow part of the wedge toward your foot. I find that if I put them so the narrow part of the wedge is to the left and the wide part to the right. I'll call this pointing toward 3 oclock. Then I can set my foot as far up the wedge as necessary to give me a little better control of the speed. Maybe not exactly pointing to 3 oclock to the right, more like 2 oclock. Try it and see.
