Fold-up pedal lifts to free floor space
After replacing my scrollsaw's open-base stand with a wall-mounted one to make cleaning the floor easier, I had to address the machine's foot pedal. Not only did it get in the way while I cleaned up, it also scooted freely on the floor when in use. I solved both problems with this swing-down arm. Now I can pivot the pedal up and out of the way when I sweep up, and it stays in place when I'm using it.
