I might give this a try once my warranty period expires. The nice thing about this mod is that you stay out of the 'meat' of the assembly and you can put everything back exactly to original if you don't like it.

Interesting indeed...
Wow. SafeAir. That isn't just interesting, that is absolutely fascinating. Thanks to DDAHL for figuring this out and to SWFLholsters for all his trouble to make such a well done and informative training aid. This has got to be one of the most interesting ideas I have seen. Even though I am really happy with my SewQuiet 5000 it would be great to have the more gentle ramp up and broader speed range. I don't see there is anything there to effect warranty either. It appears to have all the upside potential without any down side.....Can't wait to play.
