Brilliant for replacing original switch on Dewalt DW745 table sawLike a previous reviewer I wanted to replace the switch on my Dewalt DW745 table saw. The one supplied I thought made the operation of the saw (especially when using a crosscut sled) highly dangerous. If you have this table saw change the original switch with this one. It is the same make and pin layout as the original so there are no wiring problems. I made a box, 100mm deep to bring the switch further out, and like the other reviewer attached another cable to the motor feed wires and I connected these to a three pin socket mounted on the other end of the saw base. This now provides automaticon/off power to my dust extractor. Simple.

ExcellentBought this to replace the rediculously unsafe switch on my Dewalt DW745 table saw. Works perfectly and so much safer. Can switch off without looking, can even use my knees. Not a straight replacement as this switch is bigger than the orginal so I had to make a customer adapter plate. Also incorporated power take off using Neutrik Powercon True1 connectors at the same time as this switch can handle both the saw motor and a 1000 watt extractor.
