If it is a simple two-pole switch marked on/off, you cannot create this situation. You could accomplish your intention with the use of a double-pole, double throw switch, center off [which would have six terminals]! Since you are controlling a saw, you would need a horsepower rated switch. Guessing that this is a domestic application, safety would suggest using a locking type switch. [But, then, I wouldn't put a table saw where I had electric heat either...] <><><> For a 220 run, the answer for those who want to know, is a 30amp DPDT(Double Pole/Double Throw), maintained contact switch. Leviton is one manufacturer who makes this switch although you can expect to spend anywhere between $60 to $90. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB



If you do this work yourself, always turn off the power

at the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work AND

always use an electrician's test meter having metal-tipped probes

(not a simple proximity voltage indicator)

to insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

Why does electric plugs in the wall not work when light switch is on?

Some custom homes were wired with with the receptacles that were switched. The receptacle was in a circuit with a switch controlling the the voltage to the receptacle. These circuits were mostly installed in living rooms. Table lamps were plugged into them so that when a person comes into the room, one switch would turn all of the table lamps. It could be that this switch has been replaced and installed up side down. So that when the switch was turned to the up position it was really turning the receptacle circuit off.

Why is a switch useful to a table lamp?

Without a switch being incorporated into the lamp the only way to turn it off is to unplug it. At times this can be inconvenient because the receptacle it is plugged into is not in a readily accessible position. The lamp is always in a convenient position so hence the switches position can be readily accessed.
