I'm so used to a foot brake on lathes, that I decided to see what I could come up with for the 1340GT. I had a couple of foot switches laying around work so I incorporated it into my lathe. I just rewired the microswitch inside the foot petal to NC. Then I just wired it in series with my E-stop. Now I can just rest my foot on the petal and stop the lathe at a moments notice, freeing up my hands. I'm curious has anyone else tried or done this? I'm sure some of you have. Thought I'd post it for anyone who was looking for something like this.
