POWER TOOL SWITCH 8307K1 with lock

36 sedan. I ordered this switch . 2 days past i put it in my Portaband -it failed. do to me not having instructions. I thought i burned it up when the breaker sparked and blew.Would not run- then I emailed "Eurton Electric" and said the switch was not any good. I was very dissatisfied with it. So the owner sent me an email back---- on what to do with the switch wiring, He says the switch is ok.I did what he said; -putting my Portaband back together, after i religated -not caring - to the back room. So i pulled the switch/on My old-on portaband ---rewired it, Works great !!and you saved me from throwing out $300.00 on a new one. Was so happy i showed my wife how well it worked. ...Wonderful You never told me Robert someone gave you that saw. Very happy great week ahead. Thank you for your help

I think what your seeing is a button for locking the oem switch in the lock position so you don't have to constantly hold the switch on.

yes what VW said

yrs ago i had the exact same problem. new switch was only found on mars and couldn't get it.. so i got a momentary toggle and rigged it up and worked great.

Rip VW Here is a simple fix maybe,
measure the width and height of your oem switch. Go to the hardware store electrical dept and look for 115vac rated momentary contact push-button switch. You should be able to find a switch that will set in the space occupied by the old switch. you could mount that switch on a small metal plate you could use in the space the previous, Presto for a couple a dollars your back in business. Not oem but functional. Oh, pick a ac switch with a equal amp capacity as the supply demands.

matt167 Since it's of the type a drill uses. I'm going to guess that a Rockwell drill from the same era uses a switch that is likely the same. Those drills are not hard to come by and an electric motor place that has been around. probably has some parts

looking for A switch?

This is a picture of my ole "Milwaukee hand bandsaw' thats been with me 40 years i guess. Helped build many; hotrods muscle kars Kustoms .Needs parts. I have tried about everywhere but nothing turns up,for this switch
Jus "discont"; shows up on the screen. I thought i would try here- maybe one of you fellas has a "parts -bandsaw" ---model 724--ser#76107 or even a switch- you aren't using. I told her i don't need to spend the money on top quality new tools, at my age 73.She agreed 'of course. Thanks for reading this post bob s ~~~~~any help genuinely appreciated .
