  • Table saw switch.

    Looking for some advice. I purchased a table saw switch on Amazon. I mistakingly ordered a 220 switch instead of a 110. Woodstock D4159 220-Volt Paddle Switch

    is there any reason that this switch will not work on a 110V saw?

    no difference as long as the switch has a high enough current rating

    the 240 switch will have terminals and contacts for both black and white leads, the 120 switch MAY only have terminals and contacts for one power lead(black)

      You MUST check the voltage of the coil. then see if the overload can accommodate x2 the voltage assuming its an adjustable type.

      Sorry I assumed it was a Magnetic Starter you were putting on the saw. please disregard.

        If it's the same kind of paddle switch that I have then it will work fine for 120v.

        Judging by the product number it appears to be very similar to the ones I have.

          it looks like just a simple switch with no overload protection.

          very simple wiring, you can run the neutral through the switch as well but it's not necessary

            Doesn't say so in the specs but one of the reviews indicates it is a mag switch, don't know if that means it has overload protection? All to often the Amazon specs/descriptions are far from useful. They tell you what size the box it comes in and whether it includes batteries etc. but leaves out important details like whether is a mag switch or not. I think it is the result of using the same template to describe everything from an ant farm to a zipper. Rant over, now back to our regular discussion.

                Did I mention how unreliable the reviews are on Amazon in my rant? Two of the first three reviews indicate it is or acts like a magnetic switch.

                  Hi David, yes there is. The switch you purchased does not have a motor rating at 120 volts. It's impossible to know what the motor rating is at 120 volts without information from the manufacturer.

                  The D4151 is 2HP at 120V, 3HP at 240V.

                  I suggest you return it and purchase the D4151.............Regards, Rod.
