Polivoks filter pedal

Post by FlavioB » Mon Dec 23, 2019 11:14 am

Hi all.
I'm looking for someone who owns an original Polivoks filter pedal and could share pictures of it. I have got one, but it came without screws, so now I don't know if I need one long screw or many short screws in the inside.
Also, schematics would be very appreciated as well!

Thanks in advance for any help!
Flavio.

Yes we will do alien autopsy on it. I need to use a pedal because the formanta pot is going to be arthritic from all of my cutoff knob twirling.

Ok here are the pics, the pedal came in today, so I took it apart to document its innards...

The pot is operated by a string/spring mechanism. Which is neat

Thanks for the pics. Can you also show me how the screws hold it all together internally? I mean the big screws, which keep the case together...
My pedal is the earlier, first version: it has optical interface...

Pot reads 1.2k relaxed to 2.78k when the pedal is depressed. Only the middle three pins are used in the DIN cable

errr... OK, but this is not what I requested earlier :-)
I would like to have the pictures of the big screws holding the pedal parts together...

Sure thing, I didn’t know about an optical one! That’s cool

Thanks in advance for your pics of the interior and the screws.
Mine looks like this. Also: is it supposed to stay in position, when pressed/depressed? Or should it always go back down?

I see what you mean, the big bolts holding the pedal to the base. The entire layout is different between these two pedals unfortunately. Mine has a big spring that returns the pedal to flat when you step off of it. It looks like your pedal should have a machined shaft running through the whole thing including that bellcrank in the middle. I’m sorry I can’t be of more help, hopefully someone has the optical kind to look at.
