I did not want to wait for some 18 Gauge SPT -1 wire to come in the mail. I wanted to re-wire the featherweight today. I was so unhappy with my job with the SPT-2 wire that I just hated it.
Today's job went much better. It took me ten minutes to re-wire the foot pedal, less than an hour, including the soldering, to get the female half of the three pin terminal re-wired and about thirty minutes to do the plug because I kept fussing with it. Oh and the knot in the plug would not hold so I had to figure out something to keep it in place. Most importantly, I am happy with the outcome.
|This was the original|
|This was my first attempt. Too much exposed wire.|
|This is my re-re-wire. I got the knot wrong but at least the amount of exposed wire is about the same as in the original.|
