      They get dust in the switch.Take out the two screws that hold on the switch and blow it out.If that don't work wiggle the wires around a bit,works for me.

        Mine did that. Spin the movement (take off the green cover to see it) and then hit the switch. May need to do it a few times. Just a gremlin acting up.

          On mine, the on/off switch went completely out. I just bypassed the switch, and I use a foot-pedal switch. Really makes scrolling so much nicer!

              There are probably only two wires on the actual switch body. Pull them off and make a wire jumper to go between them and then plug in the saw. If it starts, then the switch was bad.

              Unless you are comfortable around hot wires, I would suggest jumping the connection first--then plug it in!

              Too early to leave, too late to call in.

                check if you have good plug ( in the wall inlet ) couse with time it start to wear (from inside) lose leads , and it might be the switch too , you may bypass it or just make a short between the wires of the switch if it work, then you have bad switch if not then check , if there is a fuse inside the control board of the saw .

                  How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                  The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                  I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                  Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                  If I were in the market for a new...

                  If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                  Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
