foot pedal on/off switch for an outdoor water feature, check!
I'm using it as a foot pedal on/off switch for an outdoor water feature. It weathers very well. Excellent in every way.

It's what I expected. Bought for use on my drill press. I do wish cord was a little longer.

Excellent product
I use the foot pedal on my table saw and it helps to quickly shut off the saw when my wood clears the blade. Before I had to reach to the front of the saw without taking eyes off the blade to find the shutoff switch. Makes using my table saw safer if there is such a thing as a safe table saw. Would buy again if needed for another tool.

As advertised
Finally got it hooked up to my scroll saw works fine, a learning curve to remember to us my foot instead of hand. I need to put it on an angle so will be more natural to use. I think it will save my on off switch. works as advertised step on step off.

I WANTED TO BE ABLE TO START AND TURN OFF MY HAND HELD ROUTER WHILE I HELD ON TO IT WITH BOTH HANDS. I MOUNTED IT ON A SMALL PIECE OF PLYWOOD AND GLUED RUBBER DRAWER LINER TO THE BOTTOM TO HOLD IT FROM SLIPPING ON THE CEMENT FLOOR. LOVE IT.

Chris on Oct 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, No where on the pedal is UL Listed found. Only a sticker Made in Taiwan!
will this run table saw and shop vac at the same time ?
S N on Jul 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It works for a single piece of equipment at a time. It could run either one however I personally do not consider it safe for a table saw operation as it can be too easily switched on by mistake. I use it on a router table and unplug the power tool when I am finished.

mike c on May 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am
Not sure what you are asking , but the router power plug , plugs into the the paddle .
