Dust Collector Switch

Sometimes safety is all about making the right thing easy. Turning on my dust collector seems like an easy thing but when I have to walk around to the other side of my table saw in the middle of a project it often gets overlooked. There are a lot of expensive solutions, some that automatically start when a piece of equipment starts, some that even control ventilation gates. Perhaps the easiest solution is having a remote in your apron pocket that allows you to select what to turn on and at the press of a button you can turn the dust collector off and on.

A remote control and 5 plug in adapters, hopefully this is the cure fro my lazy streak!

    Do you know if these remotes are available for 240 volt circuits?

      The remote was purchased on Amazon and has the name TNP products on it. I could not find any 240V options. I was fortunate that while my Tablesaw and Band saw are 240V the dust collector is only 120. I did not go so far as to search on European sites which may give you further options. Thanks for reading my blog

        I know Grizzly sells one, but I was hoping to find another to compare. Thank you for your reply, and your blog is terrific!

      Try Ikea. I just bought a Tradfri remote switch with a single switch for $15 USD, It is zigbee certified so it can be integrated with home automation software if you are into that.
