Finally hooked up foot pedal setup!

Postby Roger Jerome » June 29th, 2018, 9:26 am

Hi folks'
I am grateful to a fellow AGC member for selling a Richway foot pedal assembly to me. Hooked up yesterday and tried it out....works great! As different as night and day. Just wondering about a couple of things(>)
I loaded the pot with media that was fairly well spent. Used 70 psi to the foot pedal and 50 psi to the pot. When I stepped on the foot pedal the media came out fine and stopped when foot pedal was released. A bit of air was still coming out of nozzle though so I just shut off choke air valve. Will try with new grit next and maybe lower pressures(?) Hope what this older newbie is doing is ok(?)

I will have to get a couple of extra wearable parts for the pinch valve next.

Thanks to all mentors here in getting me this far along

Cheers
Roger

Glad you're up and running. There's nothing like a new piece of equipment to keep things interesting.

....for sure JB! Thanks again also for all your help along the way...it is so relaxing working this way...being able to focus on the piece in hand and not opening and shutting valves all the time. I also tried your mixing valve tip and was very helpful,

Cheers
