To make a real good suggestion, we would have to know if the switch has to fit into a mounting hole in the
saw, or is surface mounted. If it has to fit the saw, or even if it does not, the first place to try would be the
web site of the saw manufacturer to find out if an OEM switch is available. If OEM is not available, make sure
you have the voltage and amperage of the saw and you can look for switch at your local hardware store, if you
have a good one, or go online to Rockler, Woodcraft, and similar places.
