I recently inherited a Delta, 6” Joiner. Unfortunately I did not also inherit the safety key that is required to turn it on. I’ve done a couple of searches but no one seems to have that key, or even that switch (which, one would think would come with a safety key).

The part #’s are 1343578 for the safety key and 1343759 for the switch. Doe’s anyone know where I can get one, or recommend a completely new switch / key?

Thanks in advance.

Here’s the switch which replaced your switch model number:

Do you have the model number of the jointer itself?

Well. You transposed the 7 and 5 in the part number on the key… 1343758 not 1343578

ereplacementparts says the key is discontinued, indicating you’d have to replace the switch.

But if you go to Delta’s site, they let you add the key to your cart for $3.53 (plus $9.95 s/h).

Hope this helps.

ereplacements has the switch, but no key – kind of makes the switch worthless.

Ordered the key direct from Delta, we’ll see if it actually fits. $4 part, $10 shipping – go figure.

Thanks for your help.

You could make your own safety key with plastic. or https://www.midwesttechnology.com/delta-on-off-switch-w-key-766604-489105-00/

Well, I wish I had caught this a little earlier. You can buy a workable substitute for those at Menards. I bought a 2 pack and could have mailed you one.

We’ll see if it actually works when it gets here. I’ll let you know.

The switch comes complete with a key. And you can find those switches all over the planet – it doesn’t have to be “Delta” branded (like Fred mentions) – Delta didn’t make that switch. In addition, there is nothing super stealthy about those keys or how they operate. Generally just two plastic prongs that engage the switch mechanism – so in a pinch, almost anything can be used to get it to function – whittled down chop stick, finish nail, suitable gauge wire, etc…

Cheers,
