I was working at the tablesaw this morning.
Tablesaw was switched off at the wall switch.
Dust extractor pictured above was switched off at wall also.
wall switch was switched on (the dust extractor switch is permanently switched on)
There was a loud bang and a flash of electricity that came up the dust tube and exited at the tablesaw blade aperture, the tablesaw was not switched on at any point during this time.
The wiring of the dust extractor although touches the TS is not damaged at any point.
No fuses or RCD blew..
The dust extractor switched on later without any explosion.
Then after around another five switches it did it again. Now permanently switched off.
What is my problem do you think?
