I think that's a sign that your drill press is under utilized. It is jealous of the table saw and feeling very neglected and wants to be used.:laughing: Unless you unplug it and it still runs, then it falls more into the realm of demonic possetion. Did you ever see Maximum Overdrive?? It's kind of like that, only with power tools. (Sorry Geoff, I know I'm stealing your smart @55 thunder but I couldn't resist). How did I do?

Seriously, I'd just buy a new switch. You could monkey with it and actually make it work but you'll never know for sure if it will do it again. When your drill bit gets stuck in a piece of wood and turns it into a spinning helicopter blade the last thing you want is a power switch that might not work. Play it safe and replace it.
