IS NOT PLUGGED INTO ANY ELECTRICAL
OUTLET AT THIS TIME. IF IT IS, UNPLUG IT.
• MAKE SURE THAT ROUTER SWITCH IS IN THE
Plug the router power cord into one of the
electrical outlets on the back of the switch case.
Form the excess power cord into a coil.
Wrap two pieces of friction tape or strong cord
around the coiled cord at opposite sides of the coil.
Allow some slack so that the cord does not
become stretched when it is plugged into the
switch box outlets.
If desired, at this time plug the power cord from
an accessory, such as a wet/dry vac or light, into
the other outlet.
MAKE SURE THAT POWER
CORDS FROM THE ROUTER, ACCESSORIES,
THE SWITCH CASE, AND THE EXTENSION CORD
DO NOT AND CANNOT COME IN CONTACT
WITH THE ROUTER OR ANY MOVING PARTS
OF THE ROUTER.
The power switch is designed for use with most
Craftsman Router Tables. It provides the convenience
of an ON (RESET)-OFF
switch at the front of the
table, thus eliminating the need to reach underneath
the table to turn the router ON and OFF.
The power switch also provides an optional
ON-OFF control of an additional
accessory, such as a light, wet/dry vac, etc. The
switch has an internal, resettable circuit breaker
to provide overload protection.
This section explains the operation and features of
the switch prior to plugging the power cord into an
extension cord. The intent is to familiarize the user
with the switch operation without actually turning
ON the muter.
IMPORTANT: Remove packaging material from
under the switch cover, or else the switch will be
inoperable, and could be damaged if attempt to
use the switch with this material still in place.
The switch incorporates two positive features
to prevent inadvertent switching ON of the muter
and the unauthorized, and possibly hazardous,
use by others:
• A large cover, or paddle, covers the actual switch to
prevent the accidental switching ON of the router.
• The clear opening in the large cover allows you to
see a small red light on the switch toggle when the
switch is turned ON.
• The light is ON when the switch is ON.
• The light is OFF when the switch is OFF.
• The safety key must be completely inserted into
the side of the switch case before the switch can
be turned ON.
