    I just bought an extension cord at the hardware store for $9.99. It has a built-in foot switch for turning on christmas trees or something. Pretty neat feature. The switch is an on-off type but I modded it to be momentary-action with about 2 minutes of work. With this and my flashing LED metronome, I'm pretty set. If you are looking for a cheap foot switch you might want to have a look. If you don't like it, you at least get an extension cord.

    I hope beginners setting up darkrooms see this. A simple switch and a metronome work well.
