I tend to agree about Grainger...when I was in facility maintenance I bought a 3/4 HP induction motor from them, later I saw that our local Fleet Farm had the same motor for $75 less than Grainger! (No shipping charge factored)
Grainger w/o a vendor discount is about as pricey as it gets other than,
perhaps, McMaster-Carr. But, my recommendation was based on simply the
much larger selection of manufacturers and components from the
electronic supply folks who specialize instead of just a (relatively)
small number from which to choose...
And, of course, as another poster follow-up says, as long as the switch
has at least as high current rating as the original, "if it fits..."
(oh, that was in some other context, wasn't it??? :) )
Yes. That switch is not unique to the manufacturer.
Grizzly also has a fair selection of switches. Some of the switches
that have bigger housings with large paddles on them actually contain a
smaller switch that might be the same as your saw's.
Grizzly has specs for their switches that usually include the make/model
of the actual switch as well as their dimensions and electrical ratings.
As long as the switch has the same ratings and will fit in the switch
mount for your saw, it can be used.

You may want to try a smaller electronics site like Goldmine Electronics
or All Electronics. They display pictures as a big part of their
catalog, and it may be easier to match up an unknown switch to a picture
of a similar item, then go looking for one that matches the details of
No affiliation with either company, they just use a different approach to
their catalog I felt may be useful.
