Hi tedvandyke welcome to the forums. Is the switch for the router or for a table with plugs on the back of it.
Welcome aboard.Hi there,
2nd time trying to write/post this-just shows how my weekend has gone. lol Anyway...
I know this thread is 12 years old but it is relevant for me. tedvandyke are you still around? Did you ever resolve where to find the safety key?
Long story short, I accidentally threw mine away in March. I was moving to a new flat and thought the key was something other than what it was.
I have been drawing up some plans for different projects at my new flat and this was the weekend I was going to know 2 of the projects out and low and behold, I realized what I did.
I wrote Vermont America, but I see they no longer make any router tables anymore.
Also, woodnut65 are you still around? Can you help me to understand how to rewire with a single pole like you did? Electricity isn't my best topic. I can change out outlets and light switches and put in a ceiling fan...that's about it. I suppose I could change a cord on a lamp or vac if needed. LOL
If it weren't for budget, I would just go out tomorrow and get a little better router table, but what little bit I have is either going toward a portable table saw or maybe just a circular saw guide. So, if I plunk money into the router table, I am out of luck for the table saw.
You have no clue how disappointed I am this weekend.
Thanks for any help you guys can give me.
My grand daughter came to visit one day. She, being age 6, has always been my little helper gluing stuff and beating things with a hammer on occasion.Ahhh, thanks Chuck! I was thinking I would be getting into strange territory but now I understand. If I need such a thing, I will go that route. The main reason I liked this switch assembly is because it has the 2 outlets in the back of it.
But you know what? After Vermont America said, "Sorry.", I opened that switch box up. I was amazed to see it was only a plastic piece matching the end of the key and it was only attached by a glued spindle and controlled by a spring! I was like, "NO WAY?! And I was worried about having the key?!"
You could either fabricate one, I started this with a thin scrap of plastic and my rotary tool. Then I thought about it and it's like, I really don't need this key for my use. So, I just took out the spring, pulled the plastic piece back and taped it in place so it's always open to my switch. I always unplug if I am going to do any adjustments so there's really no need for it.
