Am trying to clean out husbands tools. Have a wards powercraft 10” radial arm saw model TPC2610B that looks like it’s hardly been used. Can’t check it out as I’m missing a switch key to turn it on. Machine looks good but is only a pile of scrap metal if I can’t get it to work.

Are you trying to sell it? Or just want to know if it works? If selling, at least tell us where you are located. Might be too far away for some of us.

That key may be a problem, it appears to be one of the plastic insert kind, but shaped unlike any I’ve seen (I found the owner's manual for that saw at OWWM). It may have to be hot wired to get it to run, I’m pretty sure finding an after market replacement would be a very long shot.

I would contact Ed Nett, the person who submitted the owners manual to OWWM and see if he has a key. He may be able to duplicate it for you.

Am trying to see if it works, in order to sell it. Located in Hubbard Lake, Mi. I did download a copy of the owners manual which is how I found out about missing key ( also the fact that when I plugged it in, nothing happened). How would I contact Ed Nett? Thanks for the replies.
