    What is this switch(?) called?

    Was replacing the nuts on this "switch" and one of the studs broke off. Can someone tell me what it's called so I can get a replacement.
    It's off a Esab Migmaster 150.

    Thanks

    I could be mistaken but that doesn't look like a switch that looks like a terminal block.

    Is that the terminals where you switch polarity?

    It is on every welder I've seen it on - you're probably right.

    It looks like a SHUNT to me. I really don't know for sure and without seeing the rest of the circuit or schematic, Im guessing. It is deffinitly shuntting a connection. A SHUNT is another word for short but a SHUNT is used for metering current.

    It's not a shunt. It's a terminal Esab item 408. It looked like shunt.

    I replaced it with this:
