Vintage Dewalt Radial Arm Saw - Power Switch Replacement


Recommended Posts

I have an old DeWalt RAS, this one had ON / OFF buttons in the "nose" above the saw. When I got my saw, there was no switch, just holes. So I have a wall-type power switch on a box on the side of the saw. Not very convenient. I am making a replacement switch (really two buttons) - 3D printed parts with a heavy duty toggle switch behind it all. I am still tweaking but it looks really good. If anyone is interested let me know. I can provide the 3D files or may be able to make the parts for you.

I've inherited a Dewalt Radial Armstrong (circa. 1960), and the ON/OFF Power Switch is faulty, so I need a new one.

Apparently these switches were made in low current and high current (15-18Amp) versions, and I need the H-igh Current version.

I would be interested in buying one from you, if it will work for my situation.

Do you have a source for the toggle switch that you use ?
