Easy to replace
5/ 5stars

Bought this to replace the switch on my jointer. Easy to replace. Unfortunately, I had to replace a similar switch on my Grizzly drill press. Not sure why the factory switches fail so quickly.

3/ 5stars

I question why the I needed to buy a new switch for my bandsaw. Why would the switch go bad.
I've had the saw for quite a few years with very little use.I was surprised when the switch went bad.
I have a few different Grizzly tools and am very pleased with the products and the way they perform.
Thanks, Chip Oliver

Took two weeks to arrive. Box crushed but switches Not damaged. Paid extra for postage for 3-5 day delivery . Arrived late. In the past delivery was prompt. Unpleasantly surprised. No problem with product itself just delivery.

Same switch that came from my jointer. It screwed right in and wired the same. I would buy another should the need arise.
Grizzly customer service was excellent at time of purchase.

Got Me Back Up and Running

Grizzly was able to meet my needs although the customer service people I spoke with either didn't know or "had other customers to talk to". My advice - know what you want specifically and order it. If you're purchasing something inexpensive, you're going to get the brush-off like me.

I have an older machine and your customer service helped me find a switch to fit.
Very happy, thank you

5/ 5stars

It fit exactly, even though I have an older model dust collector.

Had to replace the switch on a second hand dust collector I purchased. Fit perfectly, easy installation.

4th one -

It works for a little while then breaks. It sits in a dusty environment and the dust get in under that flat panel and it breaks. Overall it lasts anywhere from 1 month to 2 years so I guess thats good.

Professional knowledge and promt and fast service even if i was ordering from Alaska ,will buy from you guys again.

5/ 5stars

The switch fit perfectly. There's no doubt I will continue to support/buy from Grizzly. Thank you for the fast shipment and ease of ordering.

Great switch

I bought this for a dust collector and it was and easy to install

A tight fit, but a little filing did the trick.
4/ 5stars

The switch went out in my G7945 drill press. I was in the middle of a project, so I initially considered rigging a switch that I could get locally, but in the end I decided to order one of these. It appears to be identical to the OEM switch, but it wouldn't not quite fit into the opening in the panel ... a few minutes with a flat file solved that issue, and now I'm back up and running again.

Good switch.

Old switch gave out and was fairly simple to change out - new switch works.

exact replacement
5/ 5stars

Exact replacement for the one on my Lathe.
5/ 5stars

The original switch wore out and my lathe could not be used. Once I replace the switch the lathe has been working fine. I use my lathe 4-5 times per week on wood projects.

Just like the one that came on the machine originally.

Perfect replacement

This was 1/3rd of the cost of a Ryobi replacement switch. Fit and functions perfectly.

Relatively easy to install

Great Porduct

Solved a problem I had with the original switch on a non-Grizzly product. Glad that I could find a duplicate replacement.

Replacement Switch
4/ 5stars

The new paddle switch was provided as a replacement for the one shipped with the new jointer. The new switch appears to be more robust than the original that broke while handling it. Customer Service did a good job in arranging prompt shipment of the replacement part .
