I’m pretty brand spanking new at all of this and was given and old Craftsman 10in table saw. Being unexperienced, I have a strong desire to keep all of my digits. Which brings me to my issue.
The saw currently has a simple toggle switch located on the motor at what I believe is the back of the saw. This doesn’t seem the safest setup. I’d like to rewire the saw and put a paddle switch on the front of the saw as this would make me feel a lot more comfortable. But I don’t know a ton about electrical stuff or table saws. So here are a few questions I have:
1. How would I extend the wires from the current location at the back of the saw, to where I will ultimately need them for the switch at the front of the saw, in such a way that they aren’t at risk of being nicked or pulled on?
By the way it is a 1hp motor wired for 110v. Any help is greatly appreciated.
