The biggest advantage is that if power is lost while running, it won't automatically start running when power is restored.
You can preview the installation instructions by clicking the "Manual - PDF" button on the Grizzly website.
John - I've already pulled the instruction sheet - and have to say that I'm not really impressed with their translated from Chinese wiring diagram, but have seen worse. I am currently running my saw wired for 110VAC as I only have one 220 source and my JET 650 dust control system is on that - but might just have to sneak in another outlet.

John, are you sure? It is not advertised as magnetic. Grizzly does carry magnetic switches, but I am pretty sure that one is not.

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

This is the actual manufacturer's data sheet for a Kedu HY56;
http://www.kedu.cn/PDF/2/p59-60%28hy56%29.pdf

and their home page;
Untitled Document (yep, it really is a link)

From the descriptive lit on that home page, it sounds like it's a magnetic switch tho Grizzly doesn't advertise it as such. We'll see what it really is in a couple of days when it arrives from Grizzly/Missouri

I just went and checked, I have the 8241 which is the 120V version, not rated for 220 so I can't really be sure.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

The switch arrived - not a bad looking product, but ------ it is NOT a magnetic switch. I actually had to take the mounting bracket off to fit it into the existing JET table saw box ---- then came the fun of finding a couple of springs that did their escape 'action'. It works nicely with the temporary Leeson 1Hp motor that is replacing the JET motor while I try to find a replacement cooling fan.

A note about that Leeson motor - it came off a recently deceased 35-40 year old Craftsman air compressor. It starts much harder then the JET and while less advertised Hp seems to be stronger.
