Not gonna get all that involved MN. Easy enough to just hold the foot peddle up with my
knee when positioning the sheet. I'll just have to live with that. Tried multiple bungees at
various points along the peddle side bars, NG.
Made up my mind to get on with life and keep it simple, just pull the pedal up to get the
blade clear.

Ok, so I lied! Update for anyone who runs into a similar problem.
I can't leave well enough alone you know.
I added a 10" bias spring to each side of the foot pedal and the
blade now returns to full open.

That doesn't look too obscene.

Beats the ell out of hanging a weight on a pulley from the rafters.
