If Sears doesn't carry it any more than you are out of luck. Because of the way the switches fit in the casing it is difficult to even substitute it with another switch. What you could do would be to bypass the switch and use a foot switch to turn it on and off. You can get one at Harbor Freight fairly cheaply or you could make one. If the router is in a table then you could bypass the switch and use an ordinary light switch to turn it on and off.

Welcome, George.

If you have an electric motor repair shop near you they may be able to either modify a switch for you or tell/sell you a comparable switch.

The floor switch is a good idea. I have one of those and it works well. Frees up my hands.

That particular switch, you are not likely to find a replacement for. However, you may be able to clean the old one with contact cleaner or wd40. If you use wd40, I'd recommend removing as much as possible afterward. Might be able to just blow the dust out of it with compressed air!

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.
