Default Bandsaw off/on Switch?

You might want to look at Grizzly Tools' switches. If I recall
correctly the Reliant and Grizzly bandsaws seemed identical. Here's a
link to a Grizzly web page with switches:

I mounted a standard box with a motor-rated switch on my Delta. No more
trouble than a visit to the home center.

Hi Harry
I have one of those 4 speed taiwan made BS and my switch will refuse to
work sometimes, the problem with mine is sawdust in the switch, I blow
it out and away she goes again, I have that BS for 8 years now and
still have the original switch, maybe all you have to do is cleaning
the switch.
If not than I would replace the switch with a regular light switch.
It helps to screw, tape, or glue a flexible rubber flap over the switch
(inner tube) to keep the dust out.

Have fun and take care

Just an addition to that, Leo...
I didn't have trouble with my switch, but I know that it's usually what wears
out first..
I wired up a standard 2 outlet box with a duplex plug and a light switch to
control the plugs.. plugged the BS and the extra shopvac in so that they go on
together..
(vac is hooked up to a DC port I cut on the BS door)

Harry, when you remove the switch from the box what do the terminals
look like? If they are flat blade type, Grizzly has them for $2.95 I
believe, they also fit the Delta drill press.If this is what you need,
make sure you get 115 volt type. As others posted, you could simply use
a single pole wall switch,you would have to mount it differently.The
Grizzly switch fits lots of machines,it's a paddle switch.
