    I'm looking for a foot pedal faucet

    The kind they have in the doctor's office. It would make a nice accessory to my new darkroom sink. New, they are $$$$$$. Anyone know where I can get one used?
    Maybe all I need is the valve setup itself?

    Have you checked out a restaurant supply business? You can usually find some that deal in used equipment. Most major cities have one or more.

    Why not make one? All you need is an isolating valve, a spring and a few pieces of metal.

    hmmm......I'll look into it.
    I found a foot pedal valve set on ebay but it's still kinda pricey and I don't know (without holding it in my hand) what else I'd need to complete it.

    Chicago Faucet makes them, http://www.chicagofaucet.com/catalog...20Valves&cid=9

    Fairly pricey, as these are commercial quality and very well made, but you can often find their stuff on ebay relatively cheaply. Look in the Industrial lab equipment or commercial plumbing sections (or just search for "chicago faucet").

    The website should show all the stuff you'd need.

    Ebay has some foot pedal valves for kitchen use at what I think are reasonable prices.
