Here’s a little workshop helper I’ve found very handy. This on-off assembly is mounted to my two stage Jet dust collector.
Jet placed the original on/off switch on the motor assembly which is about 18” off ground level and behind the blower unit. Bending over, somethimes around other equipment, was a hassle.
I added a simple oak post to the support column on the collector with a couple machine screws. The switch box and cord runs to an wall outlet. The dust collector now plugs into this.
This is a lot easier to reach since it’s now at chest level.
I have another of these mounted to my portable router table, on the side. It’s a lot easier and safer to reach vs trying to find the little switch on the router.
