Perfect...Fast...EASY 08/07/2020 9:40:08 PM

After 20 years, three moves and an endless uncountable number of holes drilled in everything from wood to brass & aluminum to carbon & stainless steel, (I've been a professional custom knife maker for almost 40 years) the switch on my Grizzly Floor Mounted Drill Press gave up it's Ghost. Stuck in the "power on" position, the only way to turn it on/off was to unplug it. This replacement switch fit perfectly. Was easy to install, (anybody with a basic electrical knowledge or experience could easily figure out installation.) I HAD MORE TROUBLE REMOVING THE OLD SWITCH FROM THE COVER PLATE, than putting in the new one. Great price, super fast secure shipping. I own several Grizzly Shop Appliances & Grizzly is simply one of the best companies I've done business with. Reasonable prices on shop quality equipment and the best Customer Support in the industry. My only caveat, Grizzly would be doing customers a favor by including some kind of installation instructions..That said, replacement was no problem.

I have several Grizzly tools in my shop. As usual this switch is a perfect fit and very easy to install. This is the first time I have replaced it.
The Joiner that I replaced the switch in is 15 years old. They make very good products!

good switch 04/23/2020 2:47:21 AM

Ordered this switch to update my 10" grizzly table saw. The OEM switch was a 2 button one. This switch does not come with a new faceplate. The OEM one had 2 square holes. This switch needs a rectangle hole. So a direct fit it isn't. But with a little work I was able to retro fit it. Had to cut out the bar between the 2 holes. Had to grind the opening wider. Had to create a lip on the top and bottom so the new switch had something to grab on to. No screws hold this switch in place. It snaps in place. Anyway it is in and working fine and much better then the 2 button OEM one.

Too expensive 09/08/2019 11:11:36 PM

Original owner lost the safety (yellow plastic insert). Really did not need the entire switch. I assume other people manage to lose it also. But the part I wanted isn't available without purchasing entire assembly. Also ordered all three small parts at the same time, have no idea why they didn't just put them in the same envelope. The two parts in the first envelope arrived promptly. The most urgent part the switch got lost in transit, took over ten days to receive.

Reasaoable price. Fit right in. Works well. 08/22/2019 4:07:43 PM

Bought a used Grizzly drill press. It worked for a couple months but then the paddle switch failed. The failed switch was not the Grizzly brand so I assume the original Grizzly switch had failed at some point for the previous owner. I searched the Internet and felt the Grizzly switch was the best price and had the greatest probability of fitting and working. It did fit and works well. Shipping was fast. Very satisfied.

Anonymous Reviewer
Good Product 07/27/2019 3:39:43 AM

The switch is fine and works well. I do however understand why it failed. There is no margin in the design and it is just barely adequate for the motor load of the drill press. I would be very pleased to have4 found that the switch was rated for 20% more than the motor load. The weeks lose of productivity was far worse than $2 more for the machine.

Replacement 10/19/2018 2:24:51 PM

I have owned a side sander for about ten years. I has not had much use in that time, hobbyist use only. The switch stopped working and this is the replacement for that machine. It was easy to change out and had my sander working quickly. I will gently push off the switch in the future instead of slapping it off to prevent future failure.

Excellent add-on tool for large bowl turners 10/05/2018 12:40:04 AM

I order this tool rest extension (requires a head that can slide and also rotate 90 degrees) the end of June and it was on back-order. Fortunately, I was in no hurry. It arrived the first of October. It was on sale so I saved a bundle especially considering the Tariff War with China which has not increased the regular price by 25%, There were no assembly instructions but if you cannot quickly figure it out, you have no business with a wood lath in the first place. This tool is solid cast iron and steel with large hex/allen bolts (but no allen wrench supplied) and comes together quickly and adjusts easily. It also comes down easily for normal turning configuration.

Back to work! 09/21/2018 1:59:50 PM

My Jet 14" Bandsaw stopped working in the middle of a project. Frustrating to say the least. I figured it was the switch since this has happened before. Grizzly was great from start to finish. They had what I needed at a good price, delivered it quickly and it was easy to install so I could get back to work without too much down time. I would order again.

It works far better than the original of the same part number that was on the machine when I purchased it new. So that is a plus, since I have only used it for a few weeks it is hard to tell just how dependable it will be after many times turning the lathe on and off. However, it is very clear to me why that lathe is no longer sold, the control box is a giant pain to pull out and replace anything in it. I can see why the newer model has the box mounted externally to the head stock casting.

It's a replacement switch! 03/05/2018 5:00:02 AM

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!

Good Switch But Needs Better Installation Instructions 01/03/2018 1:00:47 PM

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.

A tight fit, but a little filing did the trick. 07/03/2017 12:58:27 AM

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.
