Q:Can this switch be used to substitute for a failed to power my 10 inch table saw?

Answer This Question

A:  Is the failed switch a simple "on/off" switch, with 2 wires going to it? If so, then you need a single pole/single throw (SPST) switch. This switch is a SPST switch, so this switch would be the correct type. If your saw requires less than 20 amps (if it's plugged into a standard 120v outlet, it almost certainly requires less than 20 amps), then this would be the correct switch. If you look closely at the failed switch, it may also have the current/amps rating marked on it. The writing will probably be quite small.

by|Jun 2, 2023

    A:  YES, IT IS RATED FOR A TOTAL OF 20 AMPS AND SHOULD WORK WITH YOUR SAW DEPENDING ON THE TOTAL AMP DRAW.

    A:  You just have to match the amperage and voltage ratings when looking at switches, your motor must not be at or above the 20 amp number. Also confirm it is just one wire in and one wire out, that makes it a Single Poll Single Throw and would be the same as this switch.

    Q:What's the maximum voltage? My application is 250V.

    A:  This switch is rated for 20 Amp/125 Volt AC and 10 Amp/277 Volt AC.

    by|May 4, 2023

      A:  I don't have in front of me at this time but I believe it is rated at 250V. Just note that as voltage goes up you will need to reduce the amperage. I would estimate about 12 amps at this higher voltage.

      A:  The manufacturer has rated it 20 amps 120/250 volts. The amp rating is determined by the internal contacts and can be used on appliance drawing 20 amps or less. If used on 240 volt you can only break one line the other is energized continuously.bill

        These worked as I had hoped! Each light can be switched on/off. This will look cool in my garage…or living room!

        Seems like a pretty solid switch! I'm not putting a lot of amps through it, so it should last for many years.
