Delta wants 35 bucks for a new one and was hoping there was someone out there that had one they weren’t using.

I’ll save you some research, since I’ve already done lots of it long ago. I looked up some nice switches that can be used on a table saw, band saw, dust collector, or any machine with a large motor. Your’s actually looks like the simple flip switch with removable plastic key. Those are a challenge to find, but they should never cost that much. has your switch, but it’s almost $40!!

I was even surprised to see the $35+ price for that little switch direct from DeWalt ServiceNET. By the way, if you didn’t already know, you can go to to find parts and repair services for most Delta, Porter-Cable, and DeWalt products. Just enter the model name (50-760) into the search box, and you can find exploded drawings, manuals, and parts lists with prices.

It’s hard to find these switches for sale used, although they come up from time-to-time (I got one that way). They’re just plain expensive. If all else fails, go to your nearest electrical supply store and get a 20A 220V toggle switch (you know…the one that looks like a home light switch), a faceplate, and a box to mount it in. That shouldn’t cost more than $15 at the extreme maximum. Forgive me if I’m wrong on the price. But if you just can’t stand paying high $$$ for an OEM replacement, this is the way to go.

But I did some serious searching a long while ago, and remember that has a decent deal on the Delta-style 220V switch might be able to use. Maybe buy something else with it to make the shipping worthwhile. Click on this picture to see the sale page: Woodtek (Delta-style) switch

They also have another pushbutton-style switch that should work, although it costs about $5 more than the last time I looked at it. I was about to buy this one when I happened to find an actual used Delta paddle switch for less than $10. But like I said, that’s very rare. I hope someone here on LJ has one laying around that they’d give you a deal on. They might want more than $10 for it, but you shouldn’t have to pay new price. Click the pic for that other switch, and ignore the little toggle: Pushbutton Switch
