Good evening all,
I've finally managed to wear out the on/off switch on my Jet 1220vs mini lathe. I removed it and figured I'd head to the hardware store (or maybe Radio Shack) tomorrow afternoon in search of a replacement. I may call Jet to see if they'll replace it, but I can't deal with the down time without my lathe right now...Too many customers waiting on turkey and duck calls.
Aside from trying to get something that appears to have the same configuration, is there anything specific about that switch that I should be looking for? Like some sort of voltage rating or DC something-a-rather? I did a search on Radio Shack's website and am not sure which one might work, if any. Most are rated 3 amps, etc. Not sure what the amp draw on that machine is for starters.
I don't know what any of this gobbeldygook means but the switch says:
18(12)A 250V 5E4
I sure do appreciate any help you all might be able to offer.
