Default Need switch

Need switch for Sears Craftsman Auto Scroller Saw 315 17280. Actually just need the red plastic portion which broke. As is, saw runs fine but in constant on mode. If no solution reasonable or foreseeable, would consider selling saw.

Hi Steve

I see many post like yours and I can see your point, BUT why not just use it like it is or just buy a new one..they all state life time but you know that it will not last that long once the parts are out of stock it's time to get a new one I think..

It's time to get real..and down to earth..

If needed, I can provide pictures.

Oh, and this is my first post here. Looking forward to the suggestions.

Just figured out a solution to the switch problem. Drilled two holes in the old plastic red switch trigger, wrapped some wire through the holes and terminated around both ends of the metal linkage pin so that the trigger has some integrity. Voila, it works just like new. Now I don't have to shell out $70 for an on-sale comparable router! Ah, life is good!!! : )

Do you have a local store that specializes in bearings? They may be able to come up with something close if you can provide them with inside and outside diameter and length. Might even be able to come up with something if you google bushings.

I have saw which is, as far as I know mechanically sound, except for the off-on switch. I would be willing to sell it for parts if you are interested.

Is the saw still available? What price did you have in mind?

I have one of these my Model Number is 315.172090. Mine the shaft will spin around and I can't seem to find what is supposed to hold it in place. Gears and switches appear to be in good shape. I would be glad to sell it if anyone is interested. $10.00 plus actual shipping.
