I hate having to maneuver around the shop to turn on my dust collectors. A lot of times I don’t remember until I have the cut all lined up and ready to go. I hope this small modification will make things a little more convenient.
In the post-Christmas clearance, I found a set of Christmas light remote switches. I checked them out and they were rated for 120v and 15A, so I decided to try them out on my equipment. They were around $7, so it wasn’t a big gamble.
I like how it turned out. I keep the remote on my table saw fence and it is a lot easier to turn on my dust collector and shop vac now as opposed to getting to the equipment and manually turning it on.
