    All the info I have about them came from Jenny at Sew-Classic. She told me the foot controller should be rated for the same or more amps as the motor. I have two foot controllers that are rated below the motors on my machines and I haven't used them. She couldn't tell me what problems I'd have, but that the higher amp motors might ruin the controllers.

    That's pretty much what I know. If you wired in that controller it might answer the question for us.

    They are sweet machines. I have 6-66s and 2-99s. As far as I'm concerned they are the best of the old Singer straight stitchers.

    I'm not concerned about ruining the controller but I don't want to mess up the motor. So if it won't mess up the motor I think I'm going to try to wire up the foot controller when the cord set box comes in. I will try to let you know how it works out.
