Default Table saw switch

So I've had my new to me cabinet saw a few weeks and really am liking it
It is a twenty year old tiawnesse unit,may not be the highest quality but a big step up from the job site saw it replaced at less cost.
What I don't like is the on/off switch and would like to replace it with a paddle type.
I am challenged electrically so need help.how do in know if I need magnetic or non ?
It is 3 hp,220v ,single phase
Thanks
Al

There was one design for a wooden paddle in one of Shopnotes, which hung down over the onboard switch with a stud lined up with the off button. This was fixed to the main table and had to be lifted to start the saw, but the paddle was then pressed to switch it off.

Thanks Angie,the switch on my saw is a knob that you turn left or right for on off so can not add a paddle to it
Really do not like this switch,find it very un natural

Sorry Al, not seen one with knobs, just push buttons. I have to make a larger flappy paddle for mine when I can work out how to fix it to the TS. Hate trying to find the little off button under the TS while the blade whirls around.
