I have a restored 1952 Delta Homecraft 34-500 TS that needs a new switch. The guy I bought it from was also the restorer and did a very good job except for using a light switch for the on/off switch. Well, it filled up with sawdust and now I need something different. I am getting by on the switch on the motor today, but need something near at hand if something bad happens. Should I replace the switch with a proper one, or could I retrofit something better/safer?

Get the Grizzly H8243. It really is handy to be able to hit that paddle to shut off the saw.
