Bought this switch for my custom router table. Looks cool with the big stop sign paddle to make it easier to turn off, but difficult to turn on and off none the less. Maybe I got a bad switch. Both the on and off buttons take an abnormal amount of force to engage. The big red stop flap comes off if you don't press it exactly in the center of the paddle. Also, my router table is a cabinet design with drawers so I needed the cords to come out of the top of the switch so they wouldn't go through the side of the cabinet and interfer with the drawer slides. I was able to take the switch apart and turn it around in the case so the leads now come out the top, but still, the difficulty engaging the buttons makes me pine for the good old days of a smooth operating rocker switch.

I wanted a safety power switch for an older band saw. This one is perfect. Although it's plastic, it appears industructable. You don't have to fumble around to stop the machine. Just punch it with your fist, etc. The recessed Start button prevents accidental engagement. For non-safety applications, the large Stop paddle can be removed revealing a normal size Stop button.

I have this switch mounted on a custom router cabinet. The unit mounts easily with 2 screws or bolts and features a very heavy power cord. The only piece that isn't particularly sturdy is the the big "STOP" flap, which can easily be removed to reveal a standard red stop button. The action on the buttons is actually smoother than the similar unit on my Jet tablesaw.

You will love this switch. It was very easy to install on a extension that I built for my table saw that now is a router station. It works just as it should, there is nothing that I would change. I would buy another if the the need comes up.

Used this switch on my JessEm router table. This was a much better option than reaching under the table to turn the router on for each use, plus it added a nice safety feature of providing instant access to control the router. The switch is very heavy duty and much larger than expected. But it mounted well to my router table and works very well. JessEm should include something like this in their standard router table package.

You should be using this switch or one like it. It makes running your "Finger Eaters" just a bit safer when mounted in an easily accessible location. I highly recommend mounting the switch where you can use your knee to stop the tool without moving your hands or the stock into harm's way.

I have added these switches to my router table and jointer making them much safer to use keeping your attention focused on controlling the stock and thus avoiding a close encounter with the "teeth" of the beast.

Do yourself a favor and get one or more, you can't be too rich or too safe!

Have you ever finished a cut on your table saw and then had to figure out which piece is going to cause the least amount of damage when you let go of it to turn off the saw? This switch worked out so well I ordered two more. I have one on the router table and two on the table saw. I positioned them so that no matter where I stand I can hit one with my knee.

It can't be said enough - if you are going to be a woodworker, do everything you can to improve the level of safety in your shop. This product does just that. It is also more convenient than fumbling around for a small Off button or switch. Retrofit your saw or machine to place this somewhere where you can bump it with your leg or knee. Get in the habit of doing that so you instinctually do it in an emergency. Definitely worth $25.
