Anyone know what brand the paddle/toggle switch Marc uses on his assembly table build? He uses this to plug his compressor into. Thanks for any help!

This may be useful, I got some switches from grizzly that worked well and look much better than light switches. They have a couple different style switches (110 and 220 volts). I also like fast service and the price, (about half the price of other suppliers). Email Marc Spagnuolo here. I have never talked to Marc but I am a big fan of his work and everything he brings to woodworking. I’m sure he would supply you with the source for the switches your looking for, good luck.

I saw that several of you have used Grizzly switchs. I bought a 8241. I wired it put could not get it to stay on. It worked fine when I held it in, but it never stayed on. Any suggestions or did I just get a bad one?

I haven’t used one but Grizzly had a 110V, a 220V and a combo 110V/220V and they were all in the $15 to $20 range. these have the specs on them (amperage etc) and they are paddle switches. They looked good in the catalog is all I can really say…not much is it? Priced reasonably.
