    Default Triton WC type switch

    I'm going to post the same question in the renovators/electrical forum, but thought I would ask here too.

    The switch that you get on the WC and Router tables are DPST switches. (which means, unlike a domestic power point switch, both the active and neutral wires are switched on and off).
    I am trying to find a similar switch, and i can't find one anywhere.

    Jaycar has DPST switches but they have low power ratings like this one.
    Anything with a higher rating is a DPDT toggle switch like this one.
    (although it looks like a normal on-off switch, but it has 6 connectors on the back, so I'm a bit confused)

    Same story with Radioparts.

    Where can I get a 10A DPST switch?

    You can buy the Triton switch box as a spare part from Carbatec in Brisbane (being a spare part they are not in the catalog).

    But why not use the DPDT switch. Just use the four terminals you need for the single throw.
    Cheers, Glen

    Correct. That is the conclusion from the reno forum.
    Much better to buy a $10 switch than the whole thing from Triton (it's not even for a Triton),
