Safer and Easy to Use!

Jenine Posted August 21, 2014
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!

I find the switch..

I find the switch works very good for me and my table saw the only draw back is the plastic tabs on the paddle could have been longer but I haven't had any problem with the paddle falling off.

I've bought 3 of these and...

I've bought 3 of these and I may buy a 4th. I have one for my router table, one for an old 1.5hp molder I've restored, and one for my shop vac. I have the shop vac under the wing of my table saw along with a cyclone and I have this power switch mounted on a post in a central location next to the saw. It does what it's supposed to do. The big stop paddle is removable.
