You have the old switch, figure out what wires are connected in the various switch settings (including the diode), Go to any of the suppliers listed above (even Radio Shack - Source now) should have a switch like Bob posted. You likely wont find a 3 position switch with off at the top but you should easily find a double pole double throw with a center off. Wire it up so that with the switch up the wires are connected via the new switch that made the saw run on high with the old switch. With the new switch down wire it up so that the wires that were connected on the old switch in low speed are now connected via the new switch. So now you have switch up = high speed, switch middle = off, switch down = low speed. If you wire the double pole switch across both switches you are in effect using the two switches in parallel and doubling the rated amp capacity. If the above is not clear I can make a house call, Pickering is on the way home most nights, beer on you
No announcement yet.
