Scroll Saw Foot Switch Question
So I got a good deal on this nice, nearly new DeWalt 788 scroll saw and decided a foot switch would be a good accessory for it. I figured I'd buy a 'dead man' style N/O type switch for the saw. Then I got to thinking that constantly having to hold my foot down on a switch might be less than convenient.
Maybe I want a push-on, push-off switch? I can see the deadman style being a safety feature for something like a router table or a DP, but in the hierarchy of hazardous tools, the scroll saw seems more on the level of a screwdriver or chisel.
What do you serious scrollers use?
