I missed this 'request earlier.
The reason for sparse response is that it is a difficult thing to do and retain both the original function and adhere to electrical codes.
Now let us examine the reason for the safety switch box in the first place.
With the SS mount planer, the infeed is from the backside(away from the Mark 5/V power switch). So the safety stop switch is mounted on that side and in addition to stopping the feed motor, it also stops the SS.(assuming the SS is plugged into the safety switch box!) With the induction motor that switch can be used to turn it all off between workpieces.
Now with the PP, that is not
a good thing since the PP needs to 'boot' up after a power interruption.
Also with the PP, the planer is mounted on the other end of the headstock and the infeed end is on the SS power switch side.
IMHO this leaves only the 'Emergency Off' function as viable. In an emergency shutdown, the subsequent PP power up cycle would be a nit.
Now if that last paragraph is 'acceptable', there is a way to cause the planer safety switch to kill power to the PP also.
That be to control a 115v relay coil from the planer safety switch. The contacts on that relay controls the 230v to the PP.
Thus the planer safety switch is plugged into a 115v receptacle. The PP is plugged into a receptacle controlled by said relay. The cord for the relay coil is plugged into the planer safety switch receptacle. An enclosure would be needed to contain the relay and the receptacle for the PP power cord. A 230v power cord supplies the relay contacts.
It got a mite complicated and requires $, but would work.
I leave it as an exercise for any one interested to 'select' the power cord plugs and the receptacles.
FWIW this is not a problem with a Mark VII(115v reversible motor).
