    Everything Absolute everything with mains power viz 240volt has to be done by a licenced electrician. Portable or fixed. Even Op shops will not accept donations of say a kitchen blender, angle grinder or sewing machine if they don't have an electrician who will donate time to check & pass & stamp. Businesses are supposed to have all corded power items inspected at reg intervals. I finally sorted out a correct phone number for UK parts place and ordered a new switch (I will fit so don't tell anyone) . Actually I dont need to install a new one there is nothing wrong with the switch just the cheap crappy plastic lugs that hold it on the body. I'll probably make a metal copy before installation. Both green & red buttons have springs so it is extremely difficult/dangerous to hold the lot together with one hand while operating the linishing with the other. Of course the postage is like that from the US ie greater than the price of the item. At one time I had considered being an Aus distributor for a US item and a UK unit but the postage/shipping made it uneconomic.

    Hi & thanks h7eh7e,
    I think my post (#81) reply to McDesign answers that.I could not find any switches the same here in this country & wiring looks too short for a L plate adjacent to original point. The new switch posted is 1/2 the machine price. LOL.
