Topic tags/keywords: black decker switch key switch 9419 table saw tablesaw

Bought a never used 9419 B&D table saw that is missing the orange switch key. Anybody have one they’re willing to part with? I bought this exact saw in the mid 80’s. It’s very comfortable for me to use because I basically grew up with it. I never imagined I’d find an in box never used machine, so when mine died, it went in the trash. Now I find my new machine has no switch key. Argh. If I have to, I can wire a switch in line, but I hate to do that. Thanks!

I have spent a few minutes searching the net. You’re right, you do have a problem. Nobody carries them. Have you considered tearing it apart and totally replacing the switch?

Thanks for looking into this Randy. I can actually manipulate the switch without the key. The missing key has prongs that catch the toggle switch inside the switch box. I think my best option is to turn the switch on within the box and wire a new switch in the cord between the outlet and the factory switch. Wiring a new switch in the existing box would be next to impossible because of limited space. Also, there is a capacitor in there that I’m guessing gives the motor the extra jolt to get things moving. I really don’t want to disturb what already works. My fix won’t be pretty, but I want to be able to quickly turn the saw off in case of emergency.

Thanks for the feedback!

I picked up a Craftsman drill press on Craigslist that didn’t have the key. I would that one of those outlet plugs used in child proofing fit perfectly after a bit of filing.

Great solution for the Craftsman! Unfortunately, the fingers on the key I need are almost 3 inches long. I may try fashioning on out of wood. Thanks for your suggestion.
