In my case I decided to go with foot switches.
I picked up one that stays on til you step on it the second time and another that turns off if you remove your foot.
I got a HF foot switch also. Except I got the one that you need to keep your foot on to keep the power going. Figured it was safer that way, then if you have a problem or get startled, you just take your foot off and it stops. I just don't like the idea of having to step on it again to shut it off.
I've got a small shop, and plug in each tool separately when I use them (lathe, router, bench saw, two bandsaws). I use that foot switch with all of them except the drill press and hand power tools now. Works out very well for me. And I believe mine ran about $11 - but worth it at twice the price, to my mind.
