This convenient, mechanical push button switch features a large paddle “stop”, to allow you to quickly shut off power to your 120-Volt ac machinery. Placing the switch where you can use your hip or knee to bump it into the “off” position gives you the freedom to never take your hands off the work-Piece to turn off the machine. Surface mounts quickly and easily. Maximum 20-Amps.
This is a nice big On/Off switch! If we could give half stars, I’d give it 4-1/2 because the power cord is a little short. I think the cord is about 6’ long. In my case, it’s a perfect length because there’s a duplex right behind my router router table making it a non issue for me. If you need a longer cord, MLCS has a model that comes sans cords. You can use some SO cord and make what ever length cord you need then. It mounts easily with two screws, no supplied.
I would recommend this switch. I am considering buying the model without the cords to replace the pitiful on/off switch on my table saw.
The switch without cords is $24.59.
