How many time when starting your router or your drill press or other power tool did you wish you had one more hand to grab firmly on the piece you were ready to machine?
Often we present a piece of wood on the router just at right place to route it and then we need to let go of it to start the router and then the piece move. Or we hardly can hold one large piece , we do not feel very safe and then we need to let go of one hand to start the router or the drill press.
After I refurbished my Unisaw and installed the router table and the router a few months ago, I also installed this foot switch that I have been using since.
I feel much safer now when I start m y router because I can firmly grab on the piece to machine with both hands.
Two version of this switch exist: Momentary and Permanent.
I use the momentary.
I think that using this switch greatly improve the safety of using my router.
I very strongly recommend the use of this switch.
