I have a Delta QT-10 Contractor saw which I am modifying. One of the necessary modification is a push-button power switch. Currently it has a breaker which is on the base of the saw and on the wrong side of the saw. It is very difficult to turn it on and off which makes it very unsafe.
My question is on the wiring. I’ve bought two switches, one is a latching Emergency Stop Switch and the other is a push button switch. They are both rated at 125V 6A.
My plan was to keep the breaker and just put my new switch between the breaker and the motor.
I know enough about electronics to know what you’re talking about. I can read schematics and have done a few repairs and modifications to audio equipment.
Does anyone have any links, schematics or comments on the topic? It would be greatly appreciated.
