I have this Milwaukee portable band saw. I made a metal stand for it for it to be a bench band saw that's easily taken out. But 99% of the time, it'll be on the stand I made.

I want to bypass the trigger and put in a toggle switch somewhere on the band saw to turn it on without having to press the trigger. I've just been holding the trigger with velcro and I've also thought about making an extension cord switch, but I prefer to do it this way.

I took pictures of the trigger switch (I think it's also a potentiometer along with another wheel potentiometer on the bandsaw), but I can't read schematics.

Which wires do I splice into to run new wires for the toggle switch I want to put on the bandsaw?

I suggest not doing this. I'd put a switch controlling an outlet. But that's just me.

I forgot to post that on the first picture, when I put my multimeter leads on the first two wires on the front, I get a continuity reading from the meter.

But when I unplugged those two terminals and tied them together with a piece of wire, only the light of the bandsaw came on. The wheels never turned.

Uhm what about using a zip-tie to hold the switch in place and cut the power with a switch?

Switch looks a whole lot more confusing than you would think

Cant help you on that OP
Post pics of your stand though.
