Question Dust collector stop/go remote switch

I need every bit of help I can get to keep me off my feet so a remote control on/off button for the dusty would be great. Can anyone tell me where I will find a wiring diagram & parts list for such a contraption.Thanks in advance, James jj777746

@jj77746 - James, not sure what your requirements are, but I've got a 1HP Delta dust collector - runs on 110 (here in Canada). I picked up this set of 3 indoor wireless remote plugs. Came with a remote with three on/off buttons. I plugged one into an outlet and plugged the DC into it. Use the remote to turn the DC on and off from anywhere in the room. I used another one for my overhead dust cleaner. Used the third one for my shop vac. Cost was $20 US and picked it up at Harbor Freight - I know, I know!!! but they work great.

Here's the link.

Here's a picture from their website - not a great picture, sorry

Looks like a workable fix. The HF DC is 15 amps, this remote is rated 15 amps. My circuits are all on 20 amp breakers. Should work fine. I think I'll get one of these for the shop and for the garage DC units. $20, what's to lose?

I've been using the Shop Fox system for the past 10+ years, 1 on my DC and 1 on Shop Vac without any issues other than changing batteries.

This is what I use for my 1.5 HP dust collector, plus my shop vac, and some lights. I forget how long I have had them but it's been a while.

Harry might be of help James. As a former electronics repairman he’s pretty knowledgeablw about such things and also being from Oz he might know what you have available that’s compatible with your power system which is different from ours.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

James , I went with pretty expensive stuff from LeeValley. It’s RF , but I found something kinda cool recently for my furnace .
I have an additional fan with a hepa filter system tied into my ducting , and I wanted to turn the fan on when the furnace came on .

So I bought this solid state relay that triggers by induction. Once it senses a current draw from the wire passing threw it , it triggers a relay.
So you could have it installed on your table saw etc, and the relay would automatically start your dust collector .
It would require an additional relay , as it’s only rated at a few amps .
Not sure if it’s what your looking at , just thought I’d mention it . It would be automatic,so it wouldn’t involve a remote switch .
