Excellent safety switch for my band saw.
T. Kunz
The third, I will mount to my workbench wired to a standard 15 amp outlet so I can plug in any tool I want and have easy safe control.

Still, this was a reasonably priced replacement for my saw - A Good Product!

PRO:
big red paddle can slap at to shut off your power tool.
magnetic switch prevents tools from unexpectedly turning back on after an interruption of power.
you can put a skinny lock or some kind of rod through the green ON button to prevent accidental or unauthorized use of the power tool.
cheaper than most magnetic switches.

CON:
comes in a zip lock bag.
no wiring instructions except for electrical schematics printed on the switch itself. see below ***

***Grizzly also markets the same unit under their brand, and they have excellent instruction you can download from their site. search for model H8241.

UPDATE: I have added a couple of pictures with measurements. the base plate is same size a standard electrical box, 4-3/8" x 2-5/8".

These are great switches, and appear to be exactly the same as those that came on my more powerful large power tools. You can use these switches for a number of great things where safety is an issue.

In my case, I am using one for a 3.5 hp router that I have mounted in a router table I just made. Another, I am using to replace the switch on a brand new floor mounted belt and disc sander. Nothing wrong with the switch on the new sander, I just want the safety that a magnetic switch provides, including the large stop paddle. The third, I will mount to my workbench wired to a standard 15 amp outlet so I can plug in any tool I want and have easy safe control.

For those who complained about no wiring diagram being included, I understand to some degree. But keep in mind that most switches include a wiring diagram right on the switch itself, including these switches. You can look on the side of the actual body of the switch, and the wiring instructions are right there. Granted, you need to have a basic understanding of electricity to understand what the diagram means, but if you do not have a basic understanding of wiring, then perhaps you should not be doing anything regarding electrical wiring of this nature.

Finally, I saw one comment here that mentioned that these switches were relay switches??? I am sure this poster was confused. These are actual 110 volt, 15 amp, magnetic switches. They can be used exactly like any other switch, but have one additional safety feature. If power is lost through a power outage, or circuit breaker tripping, when power is restored the switch remains off until the green on button is pressed. This prevents a very dangerous situation that can happen with power tools.

This switch can be a great safety improvement for shop machinery, at a very reasonable price. I bought 2 (so far), one for my table saw & one for my bandsaw. It's a magnetic, or latching, type of switch, in that if you lose power due to a circuit breaker trip, the machine will not restart when power is restored until you press the green "on" button. The red "off" paddle is quite large, and very easy to bump with your knee (if suitably located) if you're using both hands to secure your workpiece on the machine while you turn it off. Regarding the lack of instructions: On the two I received, there's a small wiring diagram printed on the switch body, which should be adequate for anyone with a basic understanding of wiring principles.

Awesome! Look Twice - it's NOT a 'relay switch;' OR a plain 'switch' at all! This is a self-contained 1P motor starter - it works exactly like an old-fashioned coil relay starter that would have used remote momentary-contact START and STOP buttons. It has a magnetic coil right in the back and an integral seal-in circuit, so that the ON button powers the coil and locks in the contacts, and the OFF button breaks the seal-in circuit and drops it out, isolating the machine until the ON button is pressed again. I bought this to replace the busted (junky) ON/OFF paddle switch on my old Delta Unisaw. Those old switches were just two-pole, single-throw rockers with a big wedge paddle that shoved them to OFF if you slapped it (maybe) and would let the motor restart after a loss of power. When I got this thing, I looked it over and thought what a couple of others commented - that it was just the ON and OFF momentary-contact buttons for a starter and I'd have to buy the rest of a typical NEMA starter box with a magnetic relay, another $50-100. I stuffed it back in the box and, amid a storm of foul language that made my German Shepherds hide under the workbench, prepared to return it - until I noticed the tiny coil housing on the back. This thing is the equivalent of a safety motor starter AND a big-button kill switch, for about 1/5 the price! I'm buying three more for the rest of my bench-mounted tools.

Great switch. Wired into my BT3000 table saw. Took some effort as you need 4 connections. And here's the wiring you'll need go do: 13 - hot in 14 - hot out to motor/load 24 - neutral out to motor/load 23 -neutral in If you don't wire it this way, you'll end up with a momentary switch. If that.

First shipment came in a sideless box, and the paddle had fallen off and dropped out of the box at some point during shipping. Next one came in a huge taped box with air bubbles and the whole 9. So shipping was a pain but product is 5 stars based on quality and price.
