Freddy -- Greg --- point of order please

Off suggestion -- ok but a little tooooooo permanent to be really helpful --- :oops:

but how about the other part ---

since you quoted my question in your reply -- I mean -- after all -- and then what do you do with an axe with a custom made notch as Gregs cool tool? :cry:

As I noted before this went all the way south -- I found a couple used magnetic contractor switches in anothers' junk pile - we share - Junk that is!

SO on with the big power!

Yeah, we were off topic a bit,, you were asking about switching power on and off,, our comments were good only for a one time removal of power,, switching it off..

The notch in my knife blade makes a pretty good 12 and 14 guage wire stripper !! :D

Another way out is if your circuit breaker box is within site of the motor you can use a circuit breaker with the SWD marking. It is a switch rated breaker. They used to be HACR. That would work also.
