 I'm putting a remote start on my slider.   I gotta make the  thing myself because the electrics in my Hammer Saw are confounding  and are not simply start and stop.  There are capacitors that must be engaged and held so until the blade spins up.  Germans like doing things that way.    I'm doing it about like I did the remote for my DC.  I'll have two solenoids  literally pushing the on off buttons. A switch box on a coil of head phone wire from overhead and a 24 volt switching power supply.   It looks a tad silly but it works.  The springs in my saw's switch plate are too string for the cheap little solenoids I get from China  on the Fleabay so I'm using levers for  mechanical advantage.

why a remote switch for the saw? 

well with a slider the switch is placed so the operator has to reach down around the slider to access it.  Put a sheet of ply on the slider and you gotta grovel around on you hands and knees to find the switch.  So an over head  pull down switch is really nice.

Gotcha. Totally understand. Thanks for the clarification.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
