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

Those are your switch terminals. Most power tools like this switch both the hot and neutral wires. A Double Pole Single Throw momentary switch will work for if wired through on both sides, just don't confuse the active switch terminal or you'll have a short when the toggle is turned on. Of course a simpler and easier fix would be to find a generic switch that fits your saw. Try this link and compare measurements and current ratings to match what you have.

This a coil or something..The brown paper cover hides something .for safety i guess. I can make toggle work, IF i need to remove the piece in the brown wrap.Can i just hook up the switch.directly into this toggle ,eliminating that thing all together or can/' or will i burn something in the motor?
As usuall any help is really great thanks bob s

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.

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 .
