One of the best on the market

I put this switch on the right side, at thigh high on my router table. It is very easy to use and right there if I get into a bind.

Well Worth It - Especially if on Sale

Jeff Posted August 25, 2014
I bought two of these while on sale. I used one on my router mounted to my Rocker router table. The mounting tabs did not align well with any two holes on the legs, so I had to drill out one hole in the leg so I could get alignment and a tight mount. Feel much safer now as I can hit the big paddle with my knee, and I don't have to lean over to get to the router switch under the table top. I am 62 with back issues, so this switch combined with the router lift is really nice.

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!

I am not a fan of hardwiring, so this was the perfect safety switch choice. I purchased this for my tables saw. Simply attach it to the fence rail, plug it in and you are good to go.

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!
