All outlets can be controlled by one remote. An extra remote when I lose the first one.

Works great. I'm sorry I didn't get this sooner.

Perfect. I have used Etekcity for several years. In fact, I sent them an email describing a problem I had with them after about 2 years of use. One day, they just wouldn't work. I still don't know what happened. But I got a reply that they would be crediting my account 50% because of the problem. I turned around and ordered another set. They are still working like new. I am sold on that company. They didn't have to do that, but I thanked them for it.

I needed a remote for my HF dust collector. Even though it runs on 120v, a regular cheap remote wuldn't work. I ended up buying a Long Ranger. No problems since. The DC pulls more than 15a at startup and the remote couldn't handle the job.

Hi-Yo-Silver!
That was my issue with that system I bought , it was rated for 15amps, (they didn’t have the 20amp in Stock) and the inrush current of my DC would trip it’s breaker .
So I built a contractor and added it to the system all is well. I have no idea why they call it a contactor , as I just call it a relay .

This machines broken

I have the remote switch that Woodcraft sells. It has worked well for years.

Thanks for posting this. Every time I get ready to do the same thing I find people have a heck of a time with many of the things you can buy.

Which unit did you buy on Amazon?

Thanks.

Default Jet remote

I have a Jet remote, Model 708636C, that I bought 3 years ago from WoodCraft. It was $82 then, but today list for $99. On their site it is item number 843476.

I really like it. The switch has mounting holes so you can screw it to a wall. Since I use mine connected to a Jet dust collector, and the wall sockets are halfway up the wall, I mounted it higher to keep it unobstructed. In a 20 x 20 shop it works great.
