Just recently bought 1950"s pfaff 230-260. I'm liking it very much, will sew through wood I think! But the original foot control is very super touchy! I would like a newer foot control that's got more speed control and don't know if I should and if it would ruin the original motor. Can anyone advise???

I have used a replacement control for my Pfaff 130 and Pfaff 60. No problem at all, in fact I like the new one better as it fit my foot better. I did keep the old one to keep the machines complete.

What replacement control did you buy? Did you retain the original motor? Was there a problem with hooking it to the machine, motor, etc.? Thanks for your help.

I bought mine on eBay a while ago. I did a quick check online and saw there are many soirces. You can buy the plug and lead cord then buy a foot control and wire it yourself. You can also buy the set but it is a little more money. I just plug it in the back, the motor is not affected. If your model sounds more complex, meet us at yahoo group Oldpfaffforum for some help.
