This is one of those things that I always wanted, and wanted to do besides. Well now I have it, and have done it too. I will share how I managed to do it with you in this article if you bear with me for a bit.
Step 1: My Motivation
When I got this saw it had no motor or switch. I put a motor on it and rigged up a switch using a scrap circuit breaker. That setup was hardly ideal but I said to myself while I was doing it this is temporary, all the while also thinking is this going to be temporarily permanent? We all know how those temporary things can go don't we?
I used that switch and it worked, but every time I flipped it all I could hear in my head was my inner voice echoing, "this is temporary ..." Stuff like that can really throw me off my game let me tell you. I wanted my push button start and stop buttons!
