I have done the same thing several times on delta cont saws

on one i recall simply installing a two pole toggle switch

On a couple others i simply surface mounted a box and used a toggle that you would use in your house for the lights.(these were single pole 120 vac) as most of the delta cont saws i have had were job saws i kept em setup for 120 vac.

I recently installed this switch with a plastic electrical box from the BORG. LINK

Works great and bought another for my other Delta Contractors saw.

The switch is generic (ie: Delta didn’t make it, they bought it from someone else). Post a picture. Check the numbers on the switch – 9 out of 10 times you can find the exact switch with a simple google search on the numbers you find on it. Also, it’s extremely easy to test the switch with a multimeter. Ditto for the capacitors.


PS: Aftermarket suppliers like Mikes Tools,, etc… should have it as well.
