It works the other way mate. You plug your saw into your vac unit and when you turn on the saw, the vacuum turns on as well. You need a proper vacuum with a power outlet. Your way would mean extra wires coming out of the saw. Not a good idea. Not everyone would want a saw with extra wires coming out of it.

I have an old B&D 8" panel saw (model 34803) that needs a new switch (part # 54483-00). Can't find one.

When switches on old table saws and panel saws fail, they can be replaced with handy box and ordinary wall switch.
That's what I did for my table saw last week, after I finally got tired of pluging and unplugging the cord every time.

I'm looking for a replacement Despard switch that is in a 3 way circuit...but is not a normal 3 way switch. I took it apart and the little spring broke inside so it will not hold position. It seems like...

1) It sounds like you have a DPST 4-way switch being used as 3-way switch.
Look at screws terminals - DPST has 4 screw terminals.
I saw a post that said 4-way despard is no longer made, and couldn't find one either.

2) Next thing is to identify brand, for example Pass and Seymour (Legrand), and then contact that company directly.

Legrand despard switch page:

3) Aplus sells P&S 3-way despard switches

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on circuit or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

How to attach an on/off chain to a ceiling light- the original broke off somewhere inside. The fan switch is intact. This is one unit.

You need the little coupler thing that connects to the ball that makes up the chain. If you dont have the coupler ... you could get one at your local Ace Hardware store ... or you could just purchase a similar switch which would have the coupler on the chain.

Electric Intermatic T171 THE MOTOR IS NOT RUNNING

Insure the motor wires are hooked to the line in and nuetral posts of the timer. If they are and the timer can be triggered manually then the motor is burned out. If the timer cannot be triggered manually check the breakers at your electrcal panel to see if the one of them may be tripped that supplies the power to the timer.

Good Luck
