Speed Control Foot Pedal
Vary the speed of your carver hands-free! This variable speed foot control pedal is a must have! It allows you to vary the speed with an easy to press foot pedal, leaving your hands free to hold the tool and your work without interruptions. From off to maximum speed and everything between, you’ll be amazed how often you change your carving speed from moment to moment. With a little change in foot pressure, you can change the speed to carve intricate details or press down for fast carving.
All Metal Construction USA made
Competitor Foot Pedal - Plastic!
This foot pedal connects into your air hose to control the speed of your carver and comes with two brass hose barbs for an easy hook-up. Push your air hose onto the barbs, and you have instant speed control. Your carving tool is off until you apply foot pressure to the pedal. The more you push the pedal, the faster your carver turns. The foot pedal uses an actual control valve connected to a long throw pedal to vary the air flow. Unlike other foot controls that pinch the air hose and can cause leaks and foot fatigue.
Once you use a foot pedal like this, you’ll marvel how you ever carved without it. This foot pedal represents industrial grade quality and will last a lifetime. Best of all, it’s discounted when you buy it with the Vortex F5 Turnkey. We’ll even install the brass hose barbs and if you get the Essential Accessories Kit. Heck, we’ll provide to you a little extra hose and connect it all together for you.

Vortex Speed Control Foot Pedal
The Vortex Foot Pedal is constructed from all metal components. There is no plastic to be found anywhere! Shown here is the control valve mechanism and the two included brass hose bars. Notice how thick the metal housing is. This foot pedal represents industrial grade quality.
Notice the difference in the between the springs. Instead of a plastic crossbar pin there is a metal actuator pin that makes contact with a brass pivot point on the foot pedal lever. This is the difference between quality and cheap plastic.

Turbo Carver's Foot Control
This foot pedal uses spring pressure to pinch the air hose. When you press down on the foot pedal, the crossbar pin move down allowing the pinched hose to relax allow air to flow towards the carver. Over time, this method of air flow control will compromise the air hose where the crossbar is depressed into the hose developing a pinched area.
