Just as a follow up, I did order a couple of these from Amazon:
As mentioned by others, there are no instructions included, but there is a small wiring diagram printed on the switch body itself, which is sufficient if you have some familiarity with basic electrical diagrams.
I just installed one on my Delta CS, and again, as others mentioned, it is in fact a magnetic or latching switch, which I think is very nice considering the price. If you pull the plug, or the wall power circuit breaker trips, the saw won't start when power is restored until you press the green "on" button. Very nice safety feature.
This will be a big safety improvement for me, as I can easily press the "off" paddle with my knee if I need both hands to be holding stock pieces following a cut. I'm retiring from the working world in 2 weeks, and hope to do more woodworking than I've been able to do, and I'll take all the safety I can get. I may put these switches on everything but my shop radio.
