Wise Buys: Router Table Power Switches
This model's big stop-sign "off" switch proved the easiest to reach and find without taking my eyes off the spinning router bit. And nestled above the STOP switch, the recessed "start" switch prevents accidental startups, but is still easy to locate without looking. The Rockler switch has a 7' power cord (with 14-gauge wire) that exits the box from the bottom, and instead of an outlet, there's a handy 2' pigtail cord for plugging in the router. Mounting the switch to my 5-year-old Rockler router table required drilling one hole through the steel leg because the predrilled holes did not line up with the box. (Rockler tells us newer tables match up perfectly.)
