Introduction: Kill Switch Paddle for Dewalt DW-745
This is a kill switch "paddle" for the DW-745. I have the model without this "paddle" and it can be a bit iffy turning the saw off. This solution is designed so it doesn't require any modifications to the saw and is very simple to install.
Step 1: Making the Bracket
Print out "Template_bracket" and glue or transfer "TEMPLATE 1:1" to a small piece of aluminum sheet, I used 1 mm. Cut, drill and bend.
Step 2: Print the Stl File
Start your 3D print of "Paddle_final.stl"
Step 3: Assembly
Assemble the paddle to the bracket using 2 M3 screws.
Step 4: Installation
- Unplug the saw
- Remove the two screws (see pic).
- Slide the bracket and paddle assembly behind the switch and line up the holes.
- Refit the screws.
