I have discovered a DeWalt Model #NB1, made by AMF. The power switch is gone and believe it or not, someone has repalced it with a light switch. The machine works like new. I need to find where I can obtain an original switch and restore this wonderful piece of USA production.

There are two places that come to mind. Wolfe Machinery (800)345-6659 of Des Moines, IA, which I visited a few months ago. They are amazing with their rebuild or maybe “remanufacture” facilities says it better. The other one is called “the Original Saw Company”. I think they are somewhere around Des Moines also.
Good luck with your new saw.

I have some experience with those saws. If you have any questions just ask. Wolfe Machinery is the only place that can get (manufacture) parts for DeWalt RAS since they own the rights.
