I need to replace the on/off switch on my Delta band saw. Any advice that people can provide, such as where to buy, anything to be careful of, or a good switch to get would be greatly appreciated.
Notice where switch is located. Uusually there are two holes already drilled in frame which match up to the holes in a 2 X 4 handybox.120 volts or 230 volts?
There can be a big difference.
Best case: A motor starter with NEMA size 1 contactor.
I think that "ratings" for home shop grade switches are done by the same people that say my orange plastic shop vacuum has a six horsepower motor in it.
Below is my Delta saw with a NEMA size 1 starter controlling a 1 HP heavy duty motor.
