Hey folks I’ve been looking for a switch box for a delta table saw but can’t seem to find a single delta part dealer in the calgary area. I spoke to the dewalt part shop in calgary and they said they also know of no dealers around and directed me to ace tool repair out of Minnesota. Just wondering if anyone has dealt with them before or if anyone knows any other options for finding said part. Thanks.

Give them a call they will be able to help you and certainly order parts. Their website is not really representative of the services they offer and best of all they know what they are talking about.

You did not mention how old your Delta saw is. If it is an old one with the toggle type switch, it would be
better to update it to the newer push button type with the big red off knob. I have used this newer
type mounted on the left side of the saw so I could easily bump the off switch with my leg leaving my
hands were free to control the wood at all times.

It’s no more than a few years old? I think my old man bought it two years ago. It is a toggle type switch though. Can I use pretty much any 110/220 type switch? I’m no electchicken by any means so I was just going for the exact replacement part

My old delta/rockwell table saw has a 220 furnace switch. Not original equipment but it’s been good for about 20 years. BTW.. the saw is 110 volts but the furnace switch is rated high current so it doesn’t burn out.

I tried the dewalt delta ect place and they were the ones that told me delta canada was bought out by black and decker and delta part distribution was discontinued in atleast western canada since the beginning of the year?
