It's come to my attention that the slotted pedal that was with my 1930 Singer 101 may be a pedal only used in the beginning of 1936 for the Singer Featherweight.

If you have any info or see the pedal used "in the wild" please post here.

I just today saw a 1936 Featherweight on Ebay with this pedal:

And here's a photo of mine from my Singer 1930 101:

It was mid 1936 when the slotted controller replaced the metal one, then in late '36 it was replaced with the solid one. This is according to the history timeline of the Featherweight Shop. So a 1936 FW may have had any one of 3 different controllers.

Singer Sewing Info in the UK identifies this slotted controller as the Style B2 and they list it as only found so far with the 201K circa 1937 which fits.
