Looks like a typical Klixon thermal overload switch, or otherwise known as a Phenolic motor protector. Get the # off the switch and you should be able to find a replacement. Here is what the innerds look like for one that burnt out the heater element (from a previous owner who wired it wrong):

The bi-metal thermal element and push button are removed in that picture, but go between what would be #1 and #3 in your picture (above the heating element).


PS: There are two types – automatic reset and manual reset. You should have a manual reset type on that saw, as you do not want it starting up unexpectedly after an overload.
