The switch on my Ryobi BT-2500 gave up just when I needed the saw the most. I looked on the "net" and found a replacement one. The cost?? 35.00 !! For a switch??? They must be kidding me! A good quality single pole toggle switch with included on/off plate can easily be retro-fitted in the cover box. That's what I did. All's well now and the money I saved can be used for a new blade!!
