They do have these things called “locks”.

No problem shelly_b, you can temporarily replace the switch with a toggle if you need to and use it until you order a new switch from eReplacements.com

I had someone set a bag of frozen tomato sauce on my aluminum table saw wing. It was there fro about two weeks in a cardboard box and I didn’t have any time in the shop.
When I found it the juice had leaked out of the bag, through the box and ate about a 1/16” of my wing.

No one will own up to who did the deed, but there are only two of us and five kitties with access and the kitties don’t like tomatoes.

Test the motor, but I doubt there is anything wrong with it.
What model planer is it?

Shelly, And, Delta can probably instruct or advise, if necessary, on how to most easily replace that switch. Even be a source of supply. Of course have the model and S/N handy.

If the smoke was coming out around the switch, I’ll bet it was the blood smoking and NOT the planer motor. If anything it MIGHT have been the switch throwing the smoke, but I’d be betting the planer itself is fine.

You may hafta open ‘er up (using your Nurse/SURGEON SKILLZ) to replace the switch, but from what you’ve posted in the past I dont think this job is too big for you.

Hey, you were gonna do a Googley search to learn how to hook up 220! So how hard can it be to swap out one little swicth?

C’mon girl, use those mad skillz you got. You can do this!

He need punishment.

1. Place his hand in the planer and lower it until the hand is securely squeezed.

2. Plug planer in with switch off.

3. If nothing happens all is forgiven

4. If the planer turns on, he got what he deserved.

lol joe-i did look up how to wire a 220 and it doesn’t look bad at all. i have to go get some wire from his dad to make an extension cord b/c we will be running his welder off of it also. so we will have one outlet and 2 extension cords b/c each machine takes a different plug. we won’t be running them at the same time anyway.

haha he does need punishment joe…i guess if he doesn’t have hands then he can’t ruin any more of my things right? lol i mean, i would think common sense would tell you if i don’t want it on my bench, then i REALLY don’t want it on my power tools lol. but it was in the off position when it turned itself on, so i’m pretty sure it would come on!

Cheaper method than two cords….. change the plug on one cord to match the other, then only one cord needed.
