Am I to assume the switch is bad? When you cut it off it keeps going. Unplug to stop. No other issues.

This is the disc/belt sander on a stand.

Yes, the switch sounds bad -  could be a part is broken so that while the lever moves, it does not move a conductor inside the switch, or wires or conductors in the switch have a short

Those switches are not very robust. I have had to replace several on different Delta machines. You can get replacements through e-replacement parts or better yet, rig up a heavy duty toggle switch.

I had the same problem with the starter motor on my old Lexus.  I could not drive the car because the starter motor kept spinning.  I had to disconnect the battery.  

It, too required a new switch.  Apparently a very fine switch as it cost $350.00 plus installation.  Close to $500.00 when I was done (plus towing).

Luckily Deltas don't have steering column switches and it is likely to cost less, and  likely no towing involved either.

True...but I had listed it and had a buyer. I just flipped it on to blow some dust out and it wouldn't cut off...so it did cost some money I guess.

I had a problem with my Delta drill press. Even though the on-off switch moved, it  had "fused" in the on position inside. I took it off, unsnapped it apart and broke it free. Has been working since.

The switch toggles on and off.  Thanks though

If I remember correctly, the toggle forced together a piece of spring steel to the other contact. When turned off, the toggle goes down to relieve pressure but the metal is stuck together.
