Can this pedal be used with other power tools?

Asked by Darell November 20, 2018

Answers

It could be used for such; however, because this foot switch lacks additional safety features to prohibit incidental / accidental operation, I would not recommend any tool other than a scroll saw.

Is this a deadman switch or an on/off switch? What amperage is it rated for?

Asked by WillyCa April 24, 2019

Answers

Not actually... More of a convenience switch. Yes, it requires an maintained action to power-on whatever is connected through it; however, it lacks other protective features [i.e. a cover or toe release, etc.] that inhibit incidental / accidental activation. As long as pressure is applied to the pedal, it will allow whatever 'down stream' device to operate. Applied pressure is intended to be the operators foot, but can be anything of sufficient weight. 'Down stream' refers to how this switch is connected. The connector is a 'piggy-back' male / female, in-line adapter; the controlled device is plugged into the socket or female backside ( 15a, 120vac polarized grounding, common U.S. household outlet configuration), then the male or front of the same is 'plugged' into an corresponding outlet. As for the amperage, the label on mine is no longer readable; however, my grinder is 3/4hp @ 120vac = 560 watts = 4.5 amps (+/-).

do you have to hold it down to keep it on?
