Wood River Power Tool Safety Switch

#273750 by Thomschuck » Fri Aug 28, 2020 7:52 pm

Hello fellow shopsmith genius’s
After a horrible 7 months I am back. WHEW!
Today I picked up a new Wood River Slap Switch. It is a 15 amp switch. If you recall I am a wheelchair dude and had some issues getting to the on/off switch. By moving the switch I don’t need to reach under anything to turn my machine off. Will a 15amp switch hold up on a Mark 5?
Next question is.... I also picked up a new Ricon grinder at Woodcraft. It’s the low speed 1/2hp grinder. I was seriously looking at the Wolverine lathe tool sharpening set up. Any of you folks like to give me some intel before I move forward? Thank You!

Evidently there are two threads with this same title and subject matter. What is the practice for fixing this? Can the admin move rlkeeney's new post to the other thread and delete this one? Seems like the best end result.
