After having to return a previous foot pedal (b/c my Dremel is a polarized 2 prong plug), this pedal works just fine. I contacted the manufacturer (MLCS Woodworking) to make sure of the compatibility and they replied in a reasonable time. This pedal also accepts 3 prong plugs as well.

Added level of safety for the mini lathe and band saw. Six months and thousands of cycles without any problem.

I bought a used drill press with one of these included. I loved it - my hands controlled the drill press & work piece while my foot controlled the motor (on/off, not speed - I still get to play with belts & pulleys for that...).

I wanted some more foot switches for other tools, and finally tracked them down (I bought two more). I have one mounted on my band saw and the other as yet unmounted. Due to a (very) small shop size, the band saw is on a mobile base that sets down on two feet when I want it stationary. The switch is mounted on a thin piece of plywood that fits under one of the feet, holding it firmly in place. There is about 50mm/2" of plywood all around the switch giving lots of positioning flexibility.
The other switch I'll try on my router table once it is set up.

The "Billy Pedal Foot Switch" comes in two types, the "deadman" style that is a momentary contact switch - you must continue to press it to keep it on. As soon as you let up on your foot, its off.
The other type (I forget its name) is press once to turn the machine on and press again to turn it off and so on. In time, I intend to get one and see what I think of it for various tools.

The switch is made of heavy plastic and is plenty robust enough for my use (almost daily but certainly NOT all day long).

The switch is well made as far as it goes but there are some improvements I would like to see / will make myself:
1) Power cord put through the back end rather than by the side as shown.
2) Manual toggle switch to bypass the Billy Pedal - so you can just use the tool's normal switch normally. (I'll put it on the side where the cord originally came out.
3) A second plug so that a shop vac could be controlled simultaneously.

I've had the MLCS Billy Pedal Foot Switch, Deadman Style, for a number of months now. Up until recently, the foot switch worked as expected but now it has failed to make electrical contact when activated. I've probably had this product for a good five months and was using it most regularly.

Plugged my Dremel tool into this pedal and then added a flex shaft accessory to the other end of my Dremel and now I have hands free variable speed control with my tools. Love it! Accepts 3 prong plugs. Made in Taiwan.

We got this to foot control a mini lathe in our shop. Our only complaint was the lack of non-skid nubbins on the bottom. It's actually pretty slippery plastic. We fixed this with store bought nubbins from Radio Shack.

I use this with a scroll saw and it just makes things so much better. You don't have to take your hands off the work.

It's a foot switch and it does what it's supposed to. I use it with a scroll saw and small shop vacuum for which it works fine. It seems well made but the proof will be after a year or so of use.
