Can I just add that getting used to a motor run by a foot pedal also takes a bit of getting used to. In fact I had such a problem with it (my bad back causes all sorts of issues with my legs) I wired in a light dimmer switch to control the speed of my lathe rather than using a pedal. I take it Chris you are not a big fan of the bow? ;) They are the same as any new tool and take time to get used to but bobpat, instead of spending more money on getting motorized why not try the bow, if you dont like it then you can still get your motor. The Jacot tool is the only thing I use a bow for and I like the extra feel you get with it.
just chucking in another two cents :)
Paul.
