Default router vacum/sensor/switch/

H i guys

I think i got the title the right way round, I'm not sure what there proper name is , they work it seems as when you switch on the router it automatically switches on the dust extractor/vacuum as well , anyone got any info on them please .

Hi Martin

I have done it 3 ways, one is to make a sensor switch with auto alarm setup, one with a home alarm system ,but the best and the one that works the best for me is the one where you plug the vac.system in to a outlet box on the router cabinet and when you flip on the power for the router the vac.systems comes on at the same time...

It just takes a dual gang outlet box with a pair of outlets and a switch..
all for about 5.oo bucks
I also use it for a light setup over the router table..

see snapshot below..

You'er Welcome Martin and thanks

I use the same setup on all my router tables, it so easy to do and it's cheap just a plastic 2 gang outlet box and a switch...

I have a Craftsman auto switch from sears and it's worked out real well.

sears auto switch

When you turn on the power tool the auto switch has a few seconds delay built into it before it turns on the dust collector ( or vacuum). this helps to prevent overloading the circuit...then when you turn off the power tool it also waits a few seconds before it powers down the dust collector.

Default router vacum/sensor/switch/

I use the Sears auto switches too. I use them for my router, table saw and compound miter saw.
