    Comments about WoodRiver Accessory Power Switch :

    Reading the other reviewers complaints about the cord getting in the way of the switch, I mounted mine in the router table with switch in front, the socket to the rear and the cord facing down. With that placement, the cord is hidden and the switch is perfectly placed. One annoyance I had was the mounting holes. They are too big for most screws and washers won't fit either. Expect to be rooting around in your parts drawer looking for screws that fit or a trip to the hardware store to find them.

    Comments about WoodRiver Accessory Power Switch :

    This switch does exactly what it is designed to do. I bought it for my router table, and it works great. My complaint is having to route the plug from the router to the front of the switch, does not look professional, and can get in the way. I built my own housing which tightly holds the power cord out of the way.

    This product was easily mounted on the leg of my portable router table. It's exactly what was needed and it works so much better than unplugging the cord to stop the unit from running.

    Comments about WoodRiver Accessory Power Switch :

    I used it with my table saw, ban saw, lathe. This switch is an excellent addition to my old devices, without safety switches and easy to install. What would be nice is a circuit breaker build inside the device for protection against power surges. My only dislikes are the screws on the back, you need a washer or thin cardboard so as to level the switch. Also, the holes for the slot holder should be larger and wider to install a thicker screw or bolt. Otherwise, I am very satisfied with this product.

    Comments about WoodRiver Accessory Power Switch :

    I used this product to power cycle an electronic device (slot machine) whose on/off switch is located internally. The device works fine but due to protruding rear screw heads does not mount to a flat surface flush. I had to use some washer as stand offs.

    Design flaw but may be OK for some tools

    By  Sunshine River Walker

    from Northern California

    About Me

    Pros

    • High amp 20 vs 15

    Cons

    • No vacuum outlet
    • Outlet on front vs back

    Best Uses

    • Undusty tools

    Comments about WoodRiver Accessory Power Switch :

    There is a competing product (also sold by Woodcraft) with two female outlets, both of which are on the backside, with a keyed lockout to prevent accidental ON, altogether a better design.
