Perfect replacement 3/29/2018

Good experience 3/19/2018

The tech I visited with was vrry knowledgeable. He helped with the part and maade other suggestions, which I bought as well.

I installed the new switch Nd my sander is back and running. Thanks for the follow up.

It's a replacement switch! 3/5/2018

I bought this a week ago, and I am so glad I did. The original shorted and caused a small electrical fire. It was a first for me. Real Excitement I'm telling you! Sparks and smoke coming out of the sander. When I unplugged it and took apart the switch box the rubber leads were completely melted and there was soot everywhere. The old switch had failed before , It actually failed to cut off power and the sander wouldn't turn off unless you unplugged the thing. It turned out the contact pins had fallen out of position ( great engineering!). After all that was said and done it could have been worse the sawdust from the sander could have ignited and then we would have had a real three alarmer!
Thanks Grizzly for putting excitement into our lives!

Glad it was in stock..... 1/4/2018

I have had my belt sander for about 7 years now and the only thing to break so far was the switch, I was glad to find they still have them and got it within a week. So many times companies don't keep older parts in stock so your forced to jury rig something up. Thanks for a continuing line of great products and parts in stock. Thank You Grizzly, Robert P.

Good Switch But Needs Better Installation Instructions 1/3/2018

The safety paddle switch on my drill press failed suddenly and required replacement. The tech service folks at Grizzly were great with getting a new one here quickly. The disassembly was a bit tricky and the wiring was more than the instructions suggested. I damaged the box holding the switch during removal which I believe could have been avoided with more detailed instructions. The unit has been repaired and running fine.

Good price 12/29/2017

I needed the key for my drill press switch so I purchased the whole switch. Now I also have a spare switch for my table saw

Many companies have free shipping

12/20/2017

This was just a replacement switch, but service was great. Thanks.

12/16/2017

I repaired a used drill press that had a bad switch.

It works 12/11/2017

Needed new switch for my ten year old band saw. Found on web site, ordered, easy installed and it worked. Very happy.

Easy to replace 11/6/2017

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.

QUESTIONABLE 10/23/2017

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

10/20/2017

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.

10/11/2017

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.

9/19/2017

Part was promptly, fits just right and works fine. Good Service

Got Me Back Up and Running 9/8/2017

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.

8/24/2017

Thanks, You've resuscitated one of the busiest machines in my shop!

8/22/2017

i bought this switch and put it on my table saw just to see it wood work it did so i bought two more thank you so much

8/12/2017

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

8/6/2017

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 - 7/21/2017

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.

7/15/2017

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

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 7/5/2017

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

A tight fit, but a little filing did the trick. 7/3/2017

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.

👍 6/14/2017

Good switch. 6/2/2017

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

6/2/2017

This item did not work on my jointer you returned my money . I rigged another switch to my machine Thank you for your inquiry

exact replacement 6/2/2017

Exact replacement for the one on my Lathe. 6/1/2017

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. 5/25/2017

Perfect replacement 1/26/2017

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

Michael M
Relatively easy to install 1/26/2017

OEM switch failed after a few years, so had to buy this replacement.

Reid N
Just like it should be 1/25/2017

it appears to be OEM. completely satisfied

easy to install.

Great Porduct 1/25/2017

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

Replacement Switch 1/23/2017

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 .
