  • Starting two pieces one button

    I would like to be able to turn on my dust collector by turning on my table saw and/or miter saw and/or planer etc.
    Is there a way to wire up a plug (or a plug that I can buy) that signals my dust collector to start when I turn the power on to my tools?

    Sears used to have that critter in their stores. IIRC, it was about $25. But it's a whole lot easier to make your own. A pigtail piece of 12-3 S cord, a three pronged plug, a decent 20 amp recept. a switch, four-square box and a cover to fix the recept. and switch and you're all set. Most folks have that stuff lying around the shop. Probably put it together for less than $5 if you're a good shopper or dumpster diver. Good luck.

      i have the sears gadget. costs $20, wouldn't be without it. keeps the vac running for 3-4 secs after the tool shuts down. also has a second accessory plug. .
      there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.
