Hi There Guys

just picked up a used DW125 radial arm saw from a local guy which is retiring from carpentry.
on collection we plugged it in and it seemed to keep blowing fuses in the plug.
does anyone on here have any idea what might be causing the fuse to blow?

thanks

tony

thank you so much for the steer on the problem i guess £75 for the saw and £40 for the switch makes a reasonably priced saw lol.

Would it matter if you "rewired" the saw so that it only switches on/off using the switch on the wall socket - assuming it's accessible?

It's a different problem, but sometimes an inductive load can trigger an MCD to trip e.g. you switch it off at the socket and the current trips. One solution is switch to a cheaper wall socket because ones which switch both poles are prone to triggering an MCD and single poles are less likely.
