Default The answer for router table DC

This switch has two outlet sockets, one for the router and one for the dust collector, use this switch and both will come on. Use it instead of a conventional master/slave switch.

Good find, Harry.

Pity, it is only for 110/115V...

Harry here in the states a 14ga. rubber cord has a maximum ampacity of 18 amps. With my router at 14 amp or someone with a 15 amp router they could not use a very large vacuum without melting the cord. They should have used a 12ga rubber cord, which would have given it a 25 amp rating. This would work great for those of you with 240v systems, if it was rated at 240v.

I still like this little remote. You just stick in a pocket and push the button when you need the DC on any machine. I sent one to one of the members for his 2hp DC and it works great. It is rated at 13 amp which can handle 2hp just fine. At $10 it's a great buy.

I didn't do the maths, assuming that because it was intended for use in America for a router table and DC, the maths would add up!
Here we have another example of America being behind the rest of the world which has 220-250 volts which of course halves the current and so enables smaller cables to be used, and no, we do not have people electrocuted every day! I'm aware that many Americans do have access to 220 volts but few appear to take advantage of it.

Hi Harry
When I turned my home shop from old cars I completely wired it for both 120 and 140 volt. I think There are more 240 volt plugs than 120 as every machine capable of 240 is wired that way. Small hand tools are 120 but I never have more than 1 or 2 running at the same time.
I think here in America that more of the more or less serious wood workers are starting to use some 240 volt equipment so we are starting to catch up with the rest of the world.
Three phase is not catching on very well because most residential neighborhoods don't have access to it and it is costly to install. Used 3 phase equipment sells quite cheaply because of this. I recently bought a lightly use Powermatic 66 for $400 and found a never used Baldor 1 phase for $200.
