    I got one of these for my Hegner. I thought it would last for one session but it is still going strong after a couple of years. When I bought mine I think it was 10

    They are wonderful for scroll saws freeing up your two hands for control of the material, speeding up the process and allowing accurate cuts.

    I didn't have any trouble as I got an electrician mate to do it. I do remember thinking that this isn't as easy as wiring a plug.

    That looks like a sewing machine foot switch.

    If your saw has an NVR switch it will have to bypassed, also the foot switch needs to be a push to make non latching one.

    Is it a simple switch or does it alter the speed as well?

    It's a simple on/off switch.

    Cowboy,
    I had thoughts of fitting a foot switch to a recent machine I had but I ended up scrapping it due to a bent arm. I should have kept it and tried to fit a switch anyway as I still want to fit a switch to my present machine. A circuit diagram for your machine would help (I couldn't get one from the makers of my scrap machine), but I reckon the foot switch would need to be placed in the wire that feeds power to the motor ?
    Another point is the switch should be in some sort of shoe/covered block so that it cannot be accidently trod on while changing blades etc.
