  • Momentary or Maintained Type Foot Switch

    So, I've been looking into adding a foot switch to control my saw and was wondering which type to use. Do most users generally prefer the momentary type ["Dead Man"] switch that you have to keep depressed with your foot to operate the tool or the maintained type foot switch that you just tap once on and off?

    Here's a current thread on that very same topic that should answer your questions.

        No problem at all. Redundant posts can be beneficial to those who don't necessarily hang out in the particular forum where the question was originally posed. Only reason I even remembered the other post was that it was so recent.

          Jo, when I got my hegner long ago it had a light with it. In the back of the light was an outlet for the footpedal. I put in a 3 prong plug and plugged in my footpedal and vacuum. Ran great for 15 years. A few years ago the outlet on the lamp died and my footpedal at the same time. I had to replace...

          Conversation with Bruce. I need some beads for the dream catchers. Bruce - let me go look through my stash. I have what you need. Me - of course you do. When I first started doing shows, Bruce would go and make dreamcatcher earrings and other jewelry. He was quite good at it. Of course he was. He kept...

          The saw was plugged into a Festool Midi vac, which was plugged directly into a wall outlet.

          Rolf, could you explain your setup again? It appears your saw is plugged into foot switch which is plugged into outlet strip. Where does the Festool fit? Does it turn on when saw starts if it is...

          I seriously doubt it was operator error. Machines like these are designed to be run straight out of the box with no user activity other then plug and go. It was likely a bad component, or internal connection that failed due to vibration. Yes they do happen even in top quality machines. Even if Pegas...
