lathe remote switch
Working well for 1.5 years
I bought this switch right after getting my 3520 lathe. I wanted the safety and convenience of a remote switch. I use this switch almost every time I use my lathe, and I'm on my lathe nearly 5 days a week,and the switch has shown no issues for me on its reliability. I've heard alot of stories of others having problems, and I expect I'll eventually have to disassemble it to clean contacts or replace. Meanwhile, this is an excellent addition and I would miss it to not have it, especially when doing work that you don't want to reach around to main switch to shut the power off.
I'd recommend it.

This switch is a piece of junk!!!!
I bought this switch shortly after I got my lathe. After a week of use, the switch failed. Sent it back to Powermatic, they sat on it for a month before I had to call and light a fire under them. Confused technician said he would send a new one out to me. I received back the same switch, which had a bunch of RTV gooped on it. After using it for two days, it failed again. My advice is make your own. I am going to send it back to CPO.

A:You'll need to wire it to the lathe headstock push/pull switch, it only requires minimal skills to install so your should be able to do it.
