Hey all thanks for the info on the Grizzley DC plug issue…I will post the response and solution there.

Now, I also got a Remote with my DC and was wondering if anyone would share with me how they mounted theirs to the DC.

I have a few Ideas but I don’t want to drill a hole in something I shouldn’t or place it where it can’t be properly operated.

Thanks in advance.

Any location within the length of the DC motor cord should work just fine. My Shop Fox remote operates on a radio signal and I can operate my DC from anywhere in the shop.

If you don’t already have a remote, make sure that what you buy works for your DC’s voltage. The Shop Fox remotes come in either 110v or 220v.

I got the Long Ranger remote from Grizzley. But it doesn’t say anything about how it Radio, Infra Red. I mean the only logical place for me to mount this is to the base IMO… But I want to make sure it will function correctly there.

Greetings Randy:.... I have the Long Ranger remote. I took the main receiver box(the red box), hung it on a wall with a screw next to the d.c. Plugged it into the wall outlet, plugged my d.c. cord into the box, turned on the d.c. switch, put the remote in my pocket, and went to work. It will receive up to about 75 yards, go through walls with no problem. You can turn it on and off anywhere in your shop. Simple to use. I’ve had mine about 12 years… works good. You don’t mount it to your d.c…..mount it on the wall. Also… make sure there is a 9 volt battery in the remote you carry around.
