I finally got around to replacing the cloth bag on my 1.5 HP dust collector with a quality filter. The increase in air volume was noticeable. At the same time I added a remote control to save me a few steps in the shop running back and forth to turn the DC OFF and ON.
So today after working on the lathe I used the flexible DC hose to clean off some of the sawdust on my sweatshirt. I had the remote in the pocket of the shirt and it got sucked into the hose! I think I set a new speed record hitting the OFF switch before the remote hit the impeller on the DC.
I wonder if the remote had been sucked in if it would have turned itself off?
