Default Aldens 675B

The owners accidentally threw away the power supply and foot pedal for this machine. The machine weighs a ton, and I'll bet it's a work horse, so I'd like to save it. I've never seen a power supply/foot pedal set up like this before and hope someone can give me a source for a replacement. There are two separate wires coming from the machine, each with a standard electrical male plug at the end of each. The cords are only about 10 inches long after exiting the machine. I'll try to post pictures.

You want to get something like this https://www.amazon.com/HONEYSEW-Univ...7M/ref=sr_1_10

You will want to make sure that you get a variable speed foot controller. Just the cord block https://www.amazon.com/Sewing-Machin.../dp/B008MM6ZQQ

I find that those light/motor blocks with an electronic foot pedal are pretty much bullet proof solutions. You just need to add regular plugs to the wires and you're off the races.

Before you spend any real effort on the machine though, open up the top and take a look at the gears and the cams. If they're steel you shouldn't have a problem, but if they're plastic or a nylon check carefully to make sure that they're not cracked or otherwise broken.
