Well Worth It - Especially if on SalePosted August 25, 2014
I used the other on my Ridgid compound miter saw. It came with no master switch. The blade power is integrated with the handle, so there was already a safety feature to turn the saw off when you let go, but I wanted to be able to turn off the saw completely without unplugging so the laser light would not shine all the time. I had to use a little more imagination to mount this switch, ending up mounting on the tubular frame of the stand using C shaped pipe clamps.
Safer and Easy to Use!Posted August 21, 2014
My old Delta had the knee switch and I really liked that feature. With my new Powermatic, I had to take my eyes off the work and spinning blade to locate the switch and turn the saw off. With this installed, I don't need to do that anymore. VERY easy to attach to the saw, I thought of several mounting ideas and all of them were easy. I am going to buy another one of these for my jointer.
Some people say the paddle comes off too easily. It is true that you can remove it, and if you hit it really hard, it can detach. However, I don't generally apply a ton of pressure to stop the saw and the switch does not require it. You can bump it with your knee or thigh with firm pressure and it stays on.
Should I decide to hardwire it, the switch appears to be the same size and style as my Powermatic saw's original (with the exception of the safety paddle), so I am pretty sure it would fit in the saw's original mounting bracket. Nice!
