The Foot Treadle & Linkage:




This mechanism could also be built on the welding table and moved to the base when complete. I rarely use the hand control on the valve in favor of the foot pedal as both my hands are usually occupied holding work pieces and tools. It took a little tweaking to get the right amount of slop in the joint between the rod and the tab on the treadle shaft to make it work smoothly.
