Question Source for table saw switch (power outlet)?

I bought a used Craftsman table saw from which the owner had removed the on-off power outlet switch. Sears parts says this part is no longer available.

Does anyone know of an after-market or used parts source for these? My saw is model no. 113.298761; the original power outlet switch was mounted very conveniently--right up front, hanging from the front rip fence guide bar; the switch operates a receptacle that the 3-prong motor plug goes into. I would particularly like to locate one of these, or a substitute that could hang about this same place.

Thanks, Gary

Ditto here, on my older model Craftsman, 103,20000 circa 1950's
