I'm looking for a source to replace the power switch for my Delta 10" Contractor Saw, catalog #34-444, serial #88164328. The old switch is made by Carling, but they don't seem to sell online. Any ideas?

I would like to suggest a better switch then what came from the factory if your still interested. As you know the factory switch is mounted to the cabinet of the saw and the box that is inside the cabinet often fills with dust, the other problem with the factory switch is that it's small and not easy to reach in some cases. I replaced mine with a paddle type switch and relocated it under the fence rail. It was a fairly easy modification, I did not need to butcher the factory wires. If your interested, contact me and I'll see if I can help you out in more detail on how to do it. I also have a improved dust collection that I have designed for this saw that does not interfear with blade tilting operations.

Hi Woodchuck1957 -- I have a very similar Delta 10" table saw (model 34-410) that I recently restored and I'd like to upgrade the switch. I bought a paddle switch like this (see photo) from grizzly.com and I'd like to mount it the way you did on my saw. However I'm a bit confused about how to attch it to the table saw. Could tell me how you attached yours?

Cheers.

Woodchuck 1957, I'd be interested also in more specifics on installation and on your dust collection system. Thanks for the reply.

Hello guys, sorry I didn't get back to the site sooner, but this is how I made it all work. The switch I got from Woodtek, it came with a electrical box, but thats no big deal, the Grizzly switch should work also, just buy a electrical box. This is the original electrical box that was in my saw. I could of used it, but since the switch came with a new box and I wanted the wires comeing out high on the box I changed it.

This is the new electrical box. I simply used the old metal box as a template to cut the U shaped openings for the factory pigtails to slide into.
