Ditto here on old dictating machine switches.  Mine is about 6x8, heavy metal, 
rubber feet, and had a very smooth action.  Besides the relay that closes when 
depressing the pedal, it has one relay that "opens" during that depression.

I use an old dictating machine footswitch that I got for $10 at a local 
consignment store.  Nice and heavy, and it even has 3 separate switches, 
though I have not figured out how to use that...

I put a strip of Velcro hooks on the bottom of the switch, and it stays 
put absolutely on the Berber carpet in the shack.
