I think I have seen one similar with a Western Electric. At least that is the machine that I want to go with my controller like that. (I have the bait --- still waiting.....)

There's an old post with a pedal like that on a 1920s Singer. On a good screen you can half guess the pedal in this add has a similar pedal.

Look at this add, pedal and motor. On the second web search I found adds and pictures for WE motor and pedal sets that seem to have been sold as converter sets for various brands and models, as well as set ups for their own machines.

Some early electrical equipment can be used, but it needs to be looked at by someone knowledgeable, and I think they need to work on how to get the insulation, and if possible double insulation established for the wiring. Luckily GE was one of the better makers from the start, but electrical items made and sold before ca. 1930 wasn't always subject to regulations and official standards.

That would be fantastic. I've know I've had the controller for over a year. Just waiting for a Western Electric machine to come along.

I got some cams and it took me quite a while to figure out which machine they belonged to. Low and behold about 14 months later I found the machine that they fit. It didn't take me long to get it in the cart and out of Goodwill. You can read about it at post #70 on The Cam Thread
