Came across this yesterday at a local flea market; was told it was part of a tool. I’m afraid I cannot identify the component nor the tool it may have came from. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Safety on off switch. Could be from any number of machines- very generic.

It’s obviously a lock for a tool chest Ron. It says “Remove to Lock” right there.

Probably for self-lighting candles. Fancy upgrade for the ones in your shop, just flip the switch and presto, light.

Craftsman (Emerson Electric) use to use them as the power switch on many of their 1970-80s electric machines. Joiners, saws, planers, Radial Arm Saws etc.

I think some people aren’t understanding that Ron’s original post is tongue-in-cheek. Go check out his workshop—no electricity. All his work is done by hand and with only the sun or candles for light.
