Safer Toggle Switch / Interrupteur à bascule sécuritaire

Récemment j’ai fabriqué une base portable pour outils d’établi (lien), sur laquelle j’ai ajouté un interrupteur à bascule. L’interrupteur dépassant la façade, j’ai cru qu’il serait plus sécuritaire si celui-ci était couvert afin d’éviter une mise en marche accidentelle. Tel que montré, il fut aussi simple que d’ajouter une pièce de métal en forme de U, ici une chute de rail d’aluminium de store vertical.

Recently I make a benchtop tools portable base (link), on which I added a toggle switch. The switch protruding from the front, I thought it would be safer if it would be covered to prevent accidental start-up. As shown, it was as simple as adding a U-shape metal piece, here a scrap of vertical store aluminum rail.

    This prevents unintentional switching on, but also switching off in an emergency.

    Perhaps NO (normally open) foot switch and /or electric brake if the motor can use one.

    I wondered about the voltage / current rating of that switch on such a motor. The start current on a motor like that can be 2x the run current. Just a thought.
