  • 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?

        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.

          by Bill Wilson
          I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

          Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

          And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

          Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....
