A/C Wireing Problem

I need a A/C 120v wireing diagram that show the best way to wire a Router, Blower & Saw so would run as follows. (1)Router & Blower at the same time. (2)Saw & Blower at the same time. (3)All off at the same time,can this be done using a Double Pole Throw Switch ? if so PLEASE send wireing diagram. :o)

As Nacho says, and if you need the same switch to also cut all power, you would need a switch that includes a third position. However, if you do this, you will always have to power on the same "appliance" first each time; UNLESS the OFF position is in the center.

Nice, I think I have it now, thank's
Here's a simple diagram (simple because i used paint...) Only using single pole switches, theres a kill switch and a switch that fires up both router and blower and another that fires up the saw and blower (if you flipped both on all three could be on. This means that you don't have to have anuthing on to use the circuit and it can be added to in a simpler fashion (if you bought a drill press for exaple or a belt sander...)

A double-pole double throw switch will work if it has 3 positions: on off on. Wire the blower and saw on one side and blower and router on the other. Mouser part number 633-m202801-RO shoud work.

Question: where do I look for the Mouser switch & whats the amps.
. Mouser.
. Amps depends on how much the router/blower/saw pull. 5A should work, 10A will be better, 15A is the max you should need.

. Use one pole of the DPDT switch to power the blower and the other pole to swap between the router and saw. You'll need a second switch (SPST) to turn everything off.
