Was drilling a hole with my ElCheapo brand floor model drill press and the red plastic of the rocker switch popped out, never to be seen again. Unscrewed the panel to the switch and lo-and-behold, there are*four* wires connected (via spade connectors) to this switch, not two. Two wires are red and are fastened to the same female spade connector. One is black and if my voltmeter knows what it's talking about, it's the hot wire. The fourth wire is black and is not hot when the machine is plugged in.
My plan *was* to replace the switch with an ordinary 15A wall switch but that doesn't sound like a good idea anymore. Help, please?
