    Cool Bishop On/Off Foot Pedal or similar priced mechanical pedal.

    Title pretty much says it. I have been using some cheaper solenoid's for many years now, replaced one that wouldn't close all the way at one point on the gas line (yuck!) But it is finally time to either get new valves or invest in a mechanical pedal. Hoping to find a decent one like the Bishop on/off version or similar for around $200 to $250 if possible (he stopped taking orders for them as of the start of this year damn!). A little more is ok if the pedal is new/worth it. A used Rock-It would be awesome of course, but I doubt I will find one for the price range I am stuck at... If anyone has any other ideas about people still making pedals, point me to them.

    Check out Gabriel Hodges. I know he's on Instagram at least. They are nice mechanical pedals, they have a lot of control, more than just on/off. I have 3 of them

    Thanks! Yeah I will check it out, I may have seen some of them at one point, I just always forget who/what/when. Derp I feel like my budget may limit me of course... if I have to buy new valves I will, but I would really rather just cut out the whole electric equation. Building a mech one myself is also technically an option, but it won't be actually nice like something they put their love into.

    If building a pedal setup yourself, just be sure to order the SOV's with the Viton seals. They are safe for use with propane and oxy.
