Please help me find.....

...a switch that will turn on my DC when the TS is started.
Appreciate any help finding this item. I don't know what to call it to search for it.
Don't want the Long Ranger. Don't need another remote to clutter the shop and get lost.
Thanks folks!

What about machinery that's 220V?

I have a Jet DC1100. If I lose power to it I have to restart it ( I assume a magnetic starter). Will this device only work with a DC/vacuum with a start button that maintains a closed contact when power is removed?

I had never heard of these switches before and don't know anything about them but it certainly appears that they switch the power on and off at the point of the box itself, which means that they will not work with your system since it will just see the power go off.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Yes. I have a similar problem as I intend to hook up my DC to a wireless RC swith. No use of doing that if I would have to restart the DC manually every time I turn it on...
What you can do is to replace the switch on the DC with a mechanical swith. I don't know the correct english term for this device (currrent failure breaker or something...) but basically it's a safety device. Without it, if you have a power breakdown you may leave the machine unattended. When power comes back you have spinning machines in an unmanned shop. In this case it would not be a problem to replace it as the "master" machine (TS or whatever) probably is equipped with such a device.

MY answer was to tape a magnet to the backside of each and that way they stick to a metal surface close by. My fence, Unifence, is aluminum so I mounted another magnet on the underside and it stays put.
One remote is for the Rigid shop vac overarm, another for the 1/12HP Jet 1100 and the last is for the overhead Jet AFS 1000 which also came with a remote. My theory is if the remotes are handy you WILL use them. bill
