Great product!
Helps corral the dust at the miter saw (2-1/4” hose on a 12” Dewalt compound miter).
This switch completely changed the performance of my Dewalt biscuit joiner. Previously, the joiner would clog with sawdust, which required disassembly to clear. Also the chips would fly in your face. Now the vacuum is convienent to use, and I never see a single chip when biscuit joining. I use the small flexible shop vac hose from Woodcraft for the biscuit joiner.
It works great.

How does it work, do you plug it into an outlet? If so, what is the max amperage? It sounds useful.

Been looking at this for a while. I guess it’s time to get one. Or two.

47phord,
It plugs into the outlet, and you plug a tool and a vacuum into the device. It works with a 15 amp miter saw.
It makes biscuit joining tabletops so much more enjoyable.

Specifically, the box is a relay. When you draw current through the tool outlet it switches on the other outlet so your vacuum runs with the tool, and then when you shut off the the tool it waits another 5 seconds and then shuts off the vac. This saves you from ever turning your vacuum on and off by hand, very nice. I believe it is 15A so not good for table saws, but great for routers and miter saws for sure.

One of these days I need to get my electrical engineer co-worker to design me a relay so I can auto-start the vac on another circuit. Running a big shop vacuum w/ a 15 amp tool on the same circuit often trips the breaker.
