I’m interested in equiping my Delta 10” contractor saw with a on/off switch that also controls my dust collector. I notice that Kreg makes an after market switch for a router that allows the user to plug in the router and dust collector, but I don’t know if it’s heavy enough for a table saw or not. Does anyone know if such an after market switch is available for the table saw, or do I need to jury rig my own switch? If so, I’m not sure how to do that. Suggestions appreciated.

i use ivac products:

they are plug and play and with the ivac switch (not the ivac pro units), the saw and DC are activated simultaneously but powered by two separate circuits. i have two that are daisy chained together so a power tool simultaneously activates a 220v DC and a 110v shop vac.

BTW, one of my ivac switches failed after two years use, one year after the guaranty expired. i contacted them, explained what happened and, after noting that a few of their units had a defective component (mine was one of them), they sent a replacement. they have also been extremely generous with information on how to adapt their products to specific applications. they are technically proficient and demonstrate the kind of tech support many companies talk about but seldom deliver.

-- there's a solution to every just have to be willing to find it.

Have your say...
