    EADB7121-F36F-4E4E-A9A4-434635D8DC6C.jpeg last weekend I did a solid hardwood job on
    the second floor of a home. It was freezing outside
    ( not to mention 100’s trips up and down the steps) so the customer said I could cut in the room. I hooked my vac up to the saw to minimize the dust. The customer saw me struggling to find the vac power switch with my foot for each cut.
    The next day he dropped off this foot switch for me. It’s light duty, but seems to be fine for the vac.
    He put a different female plus on one end.
    I used it today, it works excellent

    I like that one Ern. It has 2 plugs for using different circuits. I connect my shop vac to my Edger sander. Together they can blow a circuit so I never plug them into outlets in the same room.
    • 2640 TOTAL WATTS two input power cords permit operation from two separately protected circuits.
    • TURN ON DELAY avoids the two power surges occurring at the same time.
    • TURN OFF DELAY ensures that your work area continues to be cleared of remaining airborne debris.
    • Modes of operation: Auto, Off and On. Dust Collector / Shop Vacuum up to 1HP or 5 Peak HP.

    I have a cheaper one for my table saw and old shop vac for those kinda people who don't appreciate saw dust in their yard.

    I'm cheap I just use one of those 5 outlet power cords and have the saw switch to on and when I hit the button on the cord it all comers on. Works for me.

    I'd like to see your auto switch set up Daris.
