Q:what exactly is a "pole"?

Answer This Question

A:  I'm not an electrician so I'll answer as I understand it... In a double pole toggle switch you will have 4 poles. In the double pole you will have the current going in through one end of the double pole and coming out the other end of the double pole. Or you can also say it as having a negative and positive wire connecting to one side of the double pole and then another negative and positive wire connecting to the other double sided pole.

A:  A pole is short for polarity

by|Mar 9, 2022

A:  A switch pole refers to the number of separate circuits that the switch controls. A single-pole switch controls just one circuit. A double-pole switch controls two separate circuits. A double-pole switch is like two separate single-pole switches that are mechanically operated by the same lever, knob, or button.

Q:My old (broken) switch has the connections without the screws in them. Will this switch work for my application if i remove the screws and only slide the wire for connection?

Answer This Question

A:  If you mean you have wires with push on connectors, the switch will not work without modifying it. Or you can change the connectors on the wires to a ring or spade connector to utilize the screw connection. What I did was remove the screw from the connectors on the switch and then file the switch connector so it had the correct width and thickness so the push on connector on the wires would slide onto the terminal.

by|May 4, 2023

A:  You can either remove the screws and solder the wires in place OR you can simply wrap the wire in a CLOCKWISE direction around the screws and tighten them to hold the wire in place. You can also use a female disconnect https://www.homedepot.com/p/Tyco-Electronics-0-250-Series-16-14-AWG-10-Clam-Female-Disconnect-Fully-Insulated-Nylon-EB0280-000/202204295 to attach your wires. NOTE: you will have to file the burr off of where the threaded hole is in order for the connector to slide on.

Solid toggle switch
Got this one for my 1/2 hp bench grinder. The motor is rated 120 or 220 so this switch can handle the amps and the 6 wires needed to wire it up. Great quality all around, solid terminals. A nice crisp switch to turn or off. 5 star toggle switch from Gardner and great value.

Bought this to replace the switch on a Harbor Freight horizontal bandsaw. Worked perfectly, has a satisfying "click" from off to on. Very sturdy construction. More robust than the original switch.

Switch works great on my custom made vacuum forming table
I built a vacuum forming table to make various parts for my hobbies. I installed a 3 phase vacuum motor, and needed an easy way to turn it on and off. This switch is well made and does a good job of providing AC power to the vacuum motor.
