MLCS Router-table Power Switch

Review Summary

This switch works best on the left-hand side of a router table, which is difficult if you're right-handed. Because the cord exits the box from the center of its left side, it kept getting in the way when mounted on the table’s right side. After relocating it to the left side, it quickly felt natural to reach to the left to power down. The standard toggle switch isn't as appealing as the others—there’s no quick-find kill switch—but it does have a removable key to lock out power.
Although the cord features lighter- weight 18-gauge wire, it never got hot or became an issue, no matter what size router or bit used.
