I have the above mill/drill with the red/green push in type switch. I had to remove the housing and the 2 red/green buttons to install my mini DRO. Now I cannot get the spring wire that holds the 2 buttons on and off to stay in place and of course the on/off buttons wont work.
I have looked for pics on the net for that switch but cannot find any pics that show me how to get that spring wire to stay in place.
I would be happy to just change the whole switch , something a little more positive and less finicky. Has anyone had a similar problem or can anyone tell me how to fix it?
