Q:

Bench Grinder 397.1949 lamp dis-assembly

A:

Thank you for your question on the light switch for the work lamp.

The flexible gooseneck and the light socket and switch are all in one part.

However the part for this old grinder is no longer available.

You may have to do a home repair with a generic switch that you can find locally. Some of the electrical supply shops as well as Hardware and home centers will have generic light sockets with switches built into the socket and this may work for you.

Also places like WW.Grainger will have a lot of lighting products for tools.

I am sorry that I cannot help you with a replacement switch for this bench grinder.

Thank you for your update. The parts list does not show the switch as a separate part so I have to assume it is put together at the factory as a complete light kit and it was not intended to be serviced with individual parts. At the time it was available you had to order the whole thing as a completer unit. You may have to break the knob to see how they attached the switch to the gooseneck. Sam A.
