As long as it's rated for 1.5 hp it should be good. I know Grizzley has some in that range.
How do I hook this up? What do I need to connect it to a female end?Check out the POWERTEC 71007 110/220V Paddle Switch
OK Honest John... I'm buying the switch you recommended, a 9" plug to wire to plug into wall, ill need to wire motor, but what type of box do I need to put it all inThat'll work. But you will have to make a cord for the motor. It doesn't come with a plug in cord. So you could actually wire the motor directly to a switch if you wanted.
