If the magnetic stopper is no longer available, can the machine be rewired to work on switch can you make a stopper? Thanks.
Answer Hello Buff,
The stopper has to be in place for safety reasons. If it were bypassed and someone got hurt, there would not only be the guilt involved but also the legal liabilities. I suppose you might be able to make one if you had the permanently magnetic material and a machine shop that could take measurements, grind, drill, etc.
