Grizzle switch lock

I have a Grizzle sander disc/belt combo. Iíve lost the switch lock. Itís a plastic key you insert in to the switch to be able to turn on the sander. Iíve been using a screwdriver that I have to insert in in the switch to be able to turn it on. Does anyone know of a alternate way or another way to do it. Maybe someone has made something.

There are a few different styles of the type of switch your talking about.
If safety is not the main concern and you had been using a screwdriver, I would suggest making a wedge tha size of the screwdriver you've been using and leave it in place.

Thanks Ed I think that is what Iíll have to do.
As far as safety goes in the sander plugged in to a outlet strip that gets turned off when Iím not in the shop.

I agree with Glenn, Grizzly does have good service in my experience if you decide to replace the key properly.

I never cared for those type of switches, a standard key, not a molded piece of plastic would be my preference if I required a locking machine.
Once you remove the locking piece, what do you do with it, put it in your pocket? They're usually some proprietary shape that only fits one switch, not shaped like a    key  Undecided

You likely can get another key, you can replace the switch with another one, or assuming it's a simple on/off switch you can replace it with a right sized toggle or light switch.

I replaced the on/off switch on a 110v unit a number of years back with a heavy duty light switch and it's still going strong.
