I bought a bunchtoy drill press off Craigs List that already had a foot switch wired so one could use either the foot switch or the switch on the drill press.
And I can see it would be really good for some jobs, but I rarely use the foot switch. It is just that I usually do not drill two holes with the same drill.
So before you run out and buy a foot switch, think about what kind of work you do.
