One time my flex shaft "just stopped working". Turns out there was a
cat toy, a little catnip mouse, stuck inside the foot pedal, keeping
the pedal from depressing far enough to activate the motor. Needless
to say, I had a cat in my studio, which you probably don't, but look
inside the foot pedal.....
