Welcome Gino. Did you already try ereplacement parts?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Taking it to a repair depot will probably cost as much as a new drill.
I thought manufacturers were supposed to stock parts for at least 10 years after a product is discontinued, or am I mistaken?
If the drill's older than that, you might want to bit the bullet and replace it (with a brand that will support their production).
Have you tried DeWalt Customer Service? Here in Vancouver that's the same as their repair depot.

Unfortunately Gino Dan is right. Usually with anything that goes wrong with a B&D, Skil, or Craftsman tool you might as well throw it away. They don't stock parts for long and the cost of parts makes it debatable whether you should fix it anyway. Your options would be to look for a dead one with a good switch or to wire the drill direct around the switch and use it with a dead man's foot pedal. It's hardly worth it for just using the drill but the deadman's switch can also be used with drill presses, routers, and other tools. There is a slight decease in safety factory using a foot switch as opposed to a trigger switch, at least until you get used to using it.

Chuck , I hate that term,"deadmans Switch". LOL
If the guy is dead he doesn't need a switch, just let er run.
One solution would be to buy a small on/off toggle switch and mount it on a thin metal piece and screw it to the drill motror. Might not look purty but would work.

Thank very much guys.
I'll try a couple of phonecall on monday at some repair shops. Since I'm not in a hurry, tried to find a ''dead'' one with a good switch. Finally, I'll replace it by a toggle switch if nothings is found...

Again, thank a lot guys!
