Foot Controls

Foot controls use resistance to control AC power.

AC motors are controlled by resistance based foot controls. Bakelite, or other resistance materials are positioned between to wires of the foot control cord. A lever drew the point of contact up or down through the materials. This enabled the user to control the speed of the sewing machine motor.
