  • Why is this switch hard to find?

    Stupid question, but I don't know the exact phrasing to use to find this type of switch. I want it to disconnect the power in to the VFD box on my lathe, just as this person is doing on his conversion.

      When you get into industrial switches, it is common to buy the electric end and the knob/bezel/mount separately. You can mix & match a great variety of compatible hardware. The Allied link above shows a few, DigiKey and Mouser have large selections as well.

        Rotary on-off switch.
        I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

          Yes, a double pole single throw switch function, rated for the current, and probably about like PSTP's illustration. The "cam" witches are the ones I prefer, but any switch type UL rated for the power level and voltage will work.
          .

          A switch with the "1" and "0" designation should disconnect BOTH lines in the "0" position, so get a double pole switch if you want to keep that bezel.

          Keep eye on ball.

            Exactly. Allen-Bradley, Telemecanique, etc.
