    It's okay if you reduce the power going to the foot control from the motor but not if you reduce the power going to the motor. You need a step down transformer. Any industrial journeyman electrician will know what you are talking about.

    I have found this to work beautiful on my old singers with no speed conrtol other then my "lead foot".
    It is great for so many reasons..
    You might want to check with an electrician. This kind of control might possibly damage your sewing machine motor. Just a thought.

    I use a dimmer cord on my stand alone bobbin winder. I get a consistent bobbin every time.
