Default Paddle kill switch and Woodpecker's radius jig.

I almost at the end of a two year journey of assembling a router table. The fun has been the selection of all the items and finding excellent discounts. Almost everything is new but has cosmetic flaws and or double discounts. (Never in a rush).

The last item is a paddle kill switch USA version.

I seen the Rocker switch------Are there any others you recommend?

NEXT IS THE WOODPECKER one time tool called the Radius Jig.

What do you think of that piece of tooling and what size or sizes would be the most useful?

Thanks and regards,

Herb

I had to look up which paddle safety switch I got as I was also looking at MLCS but I got Rockler's 20915 Safety Power Tool Switch on sale and the 20890 I-Socket 110m back in December. The I socket kicks on your shop vac when you power up your router or what ever tool is plugged in to it.... but anyway Rockler's switch is fine and seems to be durable.

Not familar with the radius jig but sure that there are some that are. good luck

As has been mentioned, Grizzly has an excellent selection of safety switches, not to mention some pretty reasonable prices. I use this one:
H8239 Safety Locking On/Off Switch

As far as the Radius jigs go, it is very likely an excellent product. INCRA doesn't do things any other way from my experience. It is also a very expensive product. If I understand it correctly, each jig is $25 and had two radii. It is very easy to make your own with a router and circle cutting jig. I made radius jigs of every 1/2" radius from 1-1/2 to 4 inches from some 1/2" MDF. And I made 4 sets of them. Very seldom will you just want one jig. If you are going to round corners on something, it's probably going to be at least two and will usually be 4.

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

Thanks for every-bodies input. It is so wonderful to have a research department.

To me, It be nice to have a paddle 6 to 8 inches square that you could hit with ones hip.

The second would be lots of amps-----if you use a 3 1/2 hp router and a vacuum your

amps will certainly be over 20.

Again , thanks and I make my own radius patterns.

Regards,

Herb
