  • no more dust collector remote controls

    i stumbled across this on the lee valley site:

    http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.a...t=1,42401&ap=1

    it seems to do the same thing this does:

    http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...witch&sLevel=0

    but adds the flexibility of tapping 2 circuits when necesary for the activator and slave tools.
    there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

    I've seen things like the sears one before, but the Lee Valley one, though more expensive seems like a much better idea. Having your TS (e.g.) and a dust collector/shop vac on the same 110V circuit is certainly sub optimal. Allowing you to split it like that seems like a big win.

      I don't think the Craftsman(Sears) switch was ever meant to power a TS and another high amperage tool. I have one and it works fine for its intended purpose. For anything larger I agree the Lee Valley version is the way to go.
