« Part 5: THE SWITCH - functionally complete, outstanding performance Part 6 of Ruminations, Philosophy, and Workshop Antics.......... series Part 7: Using the improved table saw, and making zero clearance inserts »

I put the dust shield sides on yesterday and I used two tone Watco to finish the switch. This is a picture of the switch on the saw, completely done and in use. I think this is the most successful shop addition I have made. Performance is optimum, and the safety added by the switch alone makes it worthwhile.

Looks real good Jim. When I see something like that I always think the manufacturers should see them.
