Depending our your model there are several ways to do it. If you are lucky you can just use the other side of the DPDT switch. Shopsmith sells a universal kit that includes a switch and a few parts that might be needed depending on the model

There is a “Sawdust session” showing several methods to replace the switch and which ccommercially available switches can be used, you will have to Google it as I don’t have the link right now.

the following switch has be used by many people if it fits your machine, it is very heavy duty and should last forever.!duty-Motor!rated-Toggles/p_789066.h_789068.a_1.t_1

Lastly this thread has lots of pointers
